Not necessarily: If you have ra, the bump could be associated with it. It also could be from a spur or osteoarthritis or a cyst. See a podiatrist.

Not necessarily: There are many bumps that people develop on their feet. Many of these are from wear and tear arthritis. Sometimes bumps and other deformities are from systemic diseases such as RA (rheumatoid arthritis). See your podiatrist if you are having pain and issues with a bump on the foot.

PROBABLY NOT: An isolated bone enlargement is probably more like DJD, not RA. RA in the feet is USUALLY on both feet, affecting the same joints equally.
