Default Scratched monitor

Hello everyone,
I have a 1 cm scratch in the middle of my screen. It doesnt really bother me too much, but i read somewhere that something can leak out of the monitor and it can be dangerous. I don't know if this is true, and it probably makes me sound stupid, but I'm just wondering if this is true.
When behind a dark background, the scratch stays white. no color ever goes through it. here is an image of the scratch behind a black background


Thank you for answers

Can you exchange it somehow. The LCD should be fairly safe and nothing should leak out. Even if you stab it with a knife, it just cracks.

I can't exchange it. The warranty does not cover scratches. As long as it's not dangerous, it's no big deal to me. It would be nice to be able to get rid of this scratch, but its not the end of the world if I can't. Thanks for your reply. Appreciate it

Psh... Do you even know what you're talking about? Dell monitors are very good unlike their desktops. Their monitors are rebranded and are made from LG or Panasonic.
