A 29-year-old male asked:

Hi all! do tailor bunions progressively get worse? i am talking about the bone deformity, not swelling or inflammation.

No: The foot may spread making the deformity more prominent. A bursar may form as well.
Dr. Arnold Beresh
Podiatry 41 years experience
Maybe: It depends how the deformity is located. If it is due to the bone alignment then yes it will get worse, if it is from enlargement of the bone it will probably be stable.
Dr. Thomas Inwood

Tailor's bunion: There is a progression to the deformity usually. See your podiatrist for x rays and a discussion
