Bob Marley first discovered that something was wrong in 1977 when he injured his foot while playing soccer with some friends. The wound seemed pretty extreme, and when it got worse instead of healing, he decided to see a doctor. Marley was diagnosed with melanoma (a rare condition in people of African descent, but one that does occur), and an amputation of the toe was recommended.
He was a rasta so he never got the amputation.
