In brief: Biopsy

If you actually remember the injury and you know for sure that it is a bruise then you may be looking at it for up to 9 months depending on how long it takes you to grow a new nail.
However, melanoma skin cancer can appear as a dark spot or bruise under the nail and is a life threatening condition and needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist or podiatrist.

In brief: Do nothing

Without doing anything, the bruise should go away from under a toenail.
If there are skin changes under the toenail that do not go away, you need to see your doctor.
