I've had a mole on the inside of my big toe for years, a few weeks ago I noticed a hard white pimple under it. Is this something to worry about?

Get it checked: I don't take any chances with moles that are changing in ANY way, because of the possible risk of melanoma. So see your clinician please. It won't hurt meanwhile to soak in warm water 4x daily for 20 minutes. If it goes away then maybe it was just a pimple! ...Read more

Had failed t12/l1 fixation 8 ½yrs ago. I'm experiencing numb fingertips, toes and bum. Other times excruciating pain in thumbs and big toe. Any link?

Pain in thumb and numbness in fingertips is likely caused by thoracic outlet syndrome secondary to a tilted shoulder hemi-girdle as a result of a functional scoliosis secondary to the failed spinal fusion procedure and interference with normal biomechanics of the back. ...Read more
