What does a single vertical light brown stripe on my finger nail indicate?

I have a single light brown vertical stripe on my finger which doesn't seem to be on the nail bed but within the nail instead.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community, but you really should have your physician look at it.

Is it only on one nail? When did you first notice the line? Had you injured that finger prior to noticing the line?
