Can you get a stone bruise on the corner of your big toe? How can I treat it cause it hurts real really really bad! :(

Might be easy to fix: Hard to tell from your description, but this could be a "subungual hematoma, " or a collection of blood under a fingernail or toenail after you've bashed it. Usually it's just a drop of blood, but it can really hurt! a doctor or nurse could show you how to drain the blood and relieve the pain (but not all nurses know how).

Can shoes cause lumps on feet? Have a painful and slightly bruised lump under my big toe but haven't hurt it.

Can shoes cause lumps on feet? Have a painful and slightly bruised lump under my big toe but haven't hurt it.

You (s)choose: I look at it this way. The slightly bruised lump was caused by: 1. Pressure on your toe with absolutely no involvement with the shoe. 2. Pressure on your toe caused by the toe and the shoe. 3. Pressure on the toe caused only by the shoe, having nothing to do with the toe's activity. I'm betting on number 2. ...Read more

It may be due to the bruising of accessory bones called "ossicles" they are small and round to ovoid in shape.
