Swollen lump on top of foot with pain, broken?

Not necessarily

Tendonitis
But certainly possible. Tendonitits, midfoot exostosis, gout are all certainly part of differential diagnosis.

Dr. Janet Kail answered:

Top of foot swollen? Could this be a stress fracture?

Yes, maybe

Stress
There are several things that can cause swelling on top of foot and stress fracture is one. If you suspect this, see your podiatrist or orthopedist. You will need to get an x-ray and sometimes other testing is necessary as stress fractures can be difficult to visualize on plain x-ray in the beginning of injury.

Hurt top of foot and now its swollen along with my knee why?

Swelling-damage

Paronychia
Usually swelling means some type of damage, either injury or systemic issue. Since you state you hurt foot, I would recommend trying rest with elevation, cold pack, compression with ace wrap, elevation. If this does not take care of swelling and pain, see your PCP, podiatrist or orthopedist.

black dot under skin on top of foot? My wife said it suddenly started burning. Doesn't appear to have a bite mark or swollen. Any ideas?

What to watch for

Not sure...could be lots of things. Biggest concern is skin cancer, but rest assured this is rare on the foot. Causes for concern would be if it just appeared or is changing in size or color or shape. Also should ask if it is raised off the surface of the skin. If these are concerns, a simple biopsy that can be done in office can determine for sure what it is.

Large, swollen, hard bump on top of foot below ankle. Swelling seems to have cut off circulation to second toe. What could this be caused from?

Ganglionic cyst

Extremity-lower-foot
I agree that you may have a cyst. Seek a foot specialist for the proper evaluation You may need to have it drained and aspirated or removed

Dr. Tania Turbay answered:

They said x ray says no breaks but ankle , top of foot all swollen and purple...is it possible it was misdiagnosed? Can't bear much weight .

Ankle Sprain

Weight
X-rays only show bone. When you injure your ankle you can injure the ligaments. Ankle sprains can cause severe pain, Swelling and purpura. This is all due to the fact that rupturing of ligaments and small vessels occur. Since no fractures were seen your best bet is to treat as a sprain. This is usually treated with Rest,ice, compression and elevation .
