I sprained my ankle SAT. It swelled up on top of foot & in front of ankle bone. I RICEd it and no more swell. When I walk it makes/feel big pop?

I sprained my ankle SAT. It swelled up on top of foot & in front of ankle bone. I RICEd it and no more swell. When I walk it makes/feel big pop?

Popping with sprain: One of the hardest things to do after an ankle sprain is to eliminate the swelling. Deep swelling can linger for an average 4 months post sprain, and this can cause a popping sensation. I like RICE, especially twice daily 15 minute ice packs and once daily contrast bathing. If the popping does cause pain, then definitely see a specialist. ...Read more

Bone sticking out of foot a bit. Could it be fractured?

Bone sticking out of foot a bit. Could it be fractured?

Possible: If you had an injury it may be a fracture. Not all protruding bony prominences are fractures. The prominence may be as a result of a normal anatomical variant of that bone. It could be a compensatory change of the bone in the area due to soft tissue contractures or a biomechanical abnormality, or it may be due to an underlying bone tumor. Get seen by a professional to determine the cause. ...Read more

Cyst like on top my left foot and diagnosed of protruding bone called Ganglion exostosis. Foot doctor said I need a surgery. Is this true?

We all need somthing: Sounds like you have an exostosis, which is nothing more than an outgrowth of bone, and a ganglion cyst. If the condition is causing pain, numbness or a problem with the functioning of your foot, then surgery is probably called for. If, however, you have a lump and no symptoms associated with it, then, you have the opportunity of holding off on the surgery for what I call a "wait see". ...Read more
