Serious Health Risk Caused By This Woman's "Bruise" On Her Nail

October 19, 2015 2 min read

Have a bruise on your nail but not sure where it came from? You pay little attention to the bruise, as you're sure you bumped your finger at some point and simply forgot about it. Bruise or no bruise, what's the big deal? So when a New York woman named Julie initially noticed a light brown line across her nail, she didn’t do anything about it. But as time went on, the line got darker and wider, until eventually it turned black. Finally finding reason for concern, Julie went to a specialist to get it looked at.
This woman suffered from nail cancer.
  What she found out was much more alarming than she could have imagined. The results indicated that she had malignant melanoma of the nail bed. “There was a brown line across my fingernail for I would say maybe a few years. It started as a light line and then it eventually started getting wider and the middle of it started to get really black,” Julie said. The cancer was caught early enough to avoid any serious health risks, however, Julie still had to undergo surgery to remove the nail.

  "People will sometimes develop an early melanoma and think it’s an injury and they don’t even really realize they’re supposed to go to their dermatologist,” New York-based nail specialist Dr. Dana Stern explained. Want to know a few signs to be mindful of? CBS News gives you the scoop:
  • Not all nail stripes are cancer, but it’s important to get them checked out because some are.
  • Reggae legend Bob Marley died from nail cancer.
  • Nail cancer is most commonly found in African-Americans.
  • There has been no correlation found between nail cancer and “cosmetic nail treatments.”

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
