No: The foot may spread making the deformity more prominent. A bursar may form as well.

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.

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