See Podiatrist : Morton's neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. Your toes also may sting, burn or feel numb.ther are also other things such as calluses,etc

Lumps in the Foot: When there is something like a lump in the foot, it indicates there is something in the foot that may place pressure on a nerve causing pain. There may also be an accumulation of fluid due to an infection or a foreign body. In any case, factors such as the size of the lump, location, how long has the lump been there, how quickly did the lump form, is the lump growing now or has it stopped?

Dr. Mallia is correct (as usual)! Time to see your family doc or a podiatrist to sort out the problem and then treat it.
