Finger Turning Brown

07/28/2010

Question:

I noticed my right index fingernail had a yellowish tint a few weeks ago then my finger starting turning a yellowish brown and now it is a dark brown and is spreading down my finger. I havent done anything unusual and it doesn`t hurt but Im very concerned. My other fingers and hand are fine so I dont know what is going on. Could you give me some advice as to why this is happening.
