I noticed there is some blue bruising under my big toenails. Should i leave it alone or will the bruising get bigger and make my nail fall off?

In brief: Get evaluated

I would recommend being evaluated.
Nail discoloration could result from many different medical conditions. A podiatrist or dermatologist might think it necessary to take a biopsy of the nail to determine the underlying cause.
