Yes: At an early stage the edge may just need to be trimmed back. If severe it may need surgical removal.
Dr. Payam Rafat

Treat it early: Leaving an ingrown nail untreated could lead to the development of an abscess and possible underlying bone infection. Get it taken care of by a professional to avoid preventable complications.
