    Thank you for your question. Toenail discoloration is often associated with nail fungus but it can also be a benign pigmentation within the nail itself. Without seeing your nails it is hard to say exactly, however a your Doctor can determine the cause of nail discoloration with a nail biopsy. If it is a fungal infection there are various medications and even laser treatments which can used to treat the nails. If the nail discoloration bothers you, I would get a second opinion and ask for a nail biopsy. Good luck!
