Possibilities: Possibly from micro trauma such as shoe pressure: especially if you are active. Can also be fungus.. How long have you noticed this. If it just appeared suddenly, more likely to be from low grade trauma. If this is not the case, or if this fails to grow out as time goes on, see podiatrist.

It is possible : It is fungus, or an accumulation of blood. Just because you state there is no trauma does not mean necessarily the toe didn't have "repetitive micro trauma " which can happen from shoe gear.
