Daughter rolled ankle inwards(soccer)says it feels like there is a crack on outside of ankle under the ball on the outside of foot,growth plate maybe?
Get an Xray: Go to your doctor. An Xray needs to be done to rule out fracture. Even if the Xray is normal, she probably still needs to be splinted and have a follow up in a week. Growth plate injuries don't always show up on Xray. Your doctor can do a complete exam and get whatever tests are necessary. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Heel spur on back of foot &below back of foot. Achilles tendinitis visible bump on the side opposite of the ankle. Been years. Pains unbearable. Help?
Sick Achilles.: Your comments sound like the findings of a previous x-ray exam. I'm not sure what is meant by "bump on the opposite side of the ankle". If it is in the Achilles tendon, then extreme pain, could make sense. It sounds as though there is something amiss with your Achilles tendon. It would make sense to immobilize the ankle, and begin non-weight bearing until tendon imaging studies can be performed ...Read more
