A female asked:

A week ago i was running and fell on our tile floor and landed on my bunion on my right foot, which is a pretty large. i have been walking on the side of my foot but have used crutches for walking outside (hurts w/ shoe). could it be fractured?

S/p fall on bunion: It is possibly fractured. 1 week of pain is a long time. Would follow up with urgent care / ER/ doc today and get Xray
