Tissue growth, as is: our entire vehicle (body). Your self-exam findings are consistent with likely healthy tissue, though apparently it long ago grew beyond what usually occurs for the 4th toe (internal controls still poorly understood). If you felt the tissue is cosmetically displeasing to you, then it could likely be removed by any physician with some basic plastic surgery (seamstress work for tissues) experience.
