Dent in fingernail

I have developed a deep dent in my left little finger nail. I haven' t injured it in any way, Previously I had ridges in all my nails from using medication, and after an operation. Should I be worried? 58year old female - menopausal.

Hi Amanda
If it is just in the one nail, and growing out, you probably injured the nailbed of that finger long ago and you don't have to worry about it - it will probably grow out. If it is on all the nails it could be due to an illness or shortage of vitamins or proteien.
