Possibly : If it has metastasized to other parts of the body such as the spinal cord, then there is a possibility. I would ask your oncologist to look further into this if you are having numbness in your legs and feet. Also if you are getting chemo therapy, this may be the cause of the swelling and numbness in your legs and feet vs the cancer. However, do ask you doctor who is treating you.

It almost sounds: Like you have a neuroma. It is possible the scarring is independent of your numb 3rd toes. I would recommend you see a podiatrist for further work up.
