Deep Tissue Bruise Foot
What can we do for my sons feet my son plays basketball. He had a game friday and practice sat. When he went to get up sunday he could barely walk his feet hurt. He said it feels like the have deep bruises. He stayed off them sun. And mon. He went back to
There are many reasons that your son's feet are hurting. It could be that he sprained a part of his foot and or ankle. There is aslo a chance that he might have some bone contusion from just the physicality of the basketball game.
My recommendation would be to definitely go and visit a podiatrist and ask them to take an x-ray of your son's feet. If there is no fracture and or dislocation noted, then, most likely the trauma has affected the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc.) in his feet.
Most likely, with proper rest, ice, elevation and some anti-inflammatory creams and or oral medications, your son's feet will feel better. Nevertheless, if in about 2 weeks, they are not improving, he may need some physical therapy. Also, MRI may need to be used to discover what specific soft tissues are affected.
Last but not least, the reason for your son's feet pain could be that he has flexible flatfoot deforimity. In that case, my recommendation would be to get him measured for orthotics. Orthotiocs are custom-made corrective inserts, which function is to basically correct any deformity in a patient's foot in order to improve the gait of the patient. They can certainly reduce the pain that he is having and also improve his walking and or running. ...Read more

Do soft tissue sarcomas usually bruise. Lump and bigbruise on foot (no mem trauma) diagnosed as broken vein/vessel. Was told sarcoma wouldn't bruis?
Don't usually bruise: Sarcomas of the foot uncommon. The most frequent sarcoma is liposarcoma that would be extremely rare followed by fibrosarcomas usually beginning with plantar fibromatosis and extending to the fibrosarcoma which rarely is vascular and doesn't bleed. The most aggressive tumor of the foot is the synovioma and epitheliod sarcoma which can bleed and tends to rapidly spread. ...Read more

Follow up required: If you have a knot which is not due to trauma, it can be cancerous (? sarcoma). But since you have just noticed this, it is too soon to tell which way it will go. Watch it for 1 to 2 weeks and check if it is increasing in size (ask you souse or friend to also put the fingers around and assess the current size. In case it increases in size over next 2 to 3 weeks, then you should go see your doctor. ...Read more
11/4 I was diagnosed with a broken vessel/vein on top of foot after pain, knot, and bruising. Now, the bruising is fading but knot is purple. Was told X-ray was normal, showed soft tissue prominence lateral to 5th metatarsal. Could this be a sarcoma?
X-Rays Vs MRI: Plane X-ray of the foot is good for detection of a broken bone but it will not show the soft tissue problems like sarcoma. For the latter you will need a MRI test which is the best test to check for a soft tissue sarcoma. But you need to first go see your doctor and show him the knot that you are concerned about. ...Read more
Foot sore on top at "bend" between leg. Deep, dull pain close to ankle bone. No bruising/swelling. X-ray show no fractures. Able to walk, hop, etc?
Possibly impingement: The anterior ankle joint may become painful when the foot is excessively dorsiflexed during activity. The soft tissue or joint capsule becomes "pinched" between the tibia (leg) and the talus (foot) causing pain. X-rays will show no fracture due to only soft tissue involvement. Typically minimal swelling or bruising. ...Read more
