Get it checked: I'm not sure what you mean by raised. Is it under the toe nail or next to the toe nail.? It could be due to trauma or maybe a mole or even possibly a melanoma. Please have it checked by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon as it may require a biopsy.

Time to see your doc: Any new or suspicious mole should be brought to the attention of your friendly dermatologist.
