My 10 month old baby's bottom of big toe has what looks like a lump (soft) and is bright red? What could thos be?

Toe push off.: It would reasonable to assume that you baby will use his legs to forcibly push his feet against anything his foot can come in contact with. Check to see if this is not happening. Foot or toe pressure against the crib, for example. Could be the beginning of a inflamed toe secondary to pressure. ...Read more

I have had a lump on the bottom of big toe on right foot for 5 days. It swollen, red and burning pain, at least at times. I do have RA. I was thin?

I have had a lump on the bottom of big toe on right foot for 5 days. It swollen, red and burning pain, at least at times. I do have RA. I was thin?

How red, how hot.: I guess RA might be a possibility, but my money goes with gout as a better possibility. There could be a cellulitis secondary to overuse, trauma or even foreign body insertion. Clearly, possibilities would be better understood with a evaluation of the area and some simple testing. ...Read more

I have a lump on the bottom of my big toe, it is soft and not painful at all.

See a doctor!: Lumps and bumps cannot be accurately diagnosed by a brief written description. See a doctor in person, or consider a Healthtap Prime Consult with a doctor, where you may upload a picture and give a more detailed history. Or see if a Healthtap Concierge doctor or podiatrist can do a virtual consult about this. The most accurate diagnosis, though, is an in-person exam. ...Read more

Keratosis or wart: When the skin is repetitively rubbed from friction against shoes or between toes, the skin will thicken and form a hard bump or ridge that can be painful. Warts can also form, especially on the sole of the foot.
These are readily treated by your primary care doctor or dermatologist. ...Read more

Six weeks ago suffered small chip fracture on big toe. Little pain now, but small hard lump present that rubs. Should I be concerned?

Six weeks ago suffered small chip fracture on big toe. Little pain now, but small hard lump present that rubs. Should I be concerned?

This may get better!: Though it's been six weeks, it is still a bit early in the overall healing process. The small hard lump you describe may be a soft tissue reaction related to the fracture. Hopefully, it is not the bone itself that has healed with prominence. The former will improve over time. The latter will remain and might require a small surgical procedure to remove this bone prominence in the future as needed. ...Read more

Why is there a hard lump on my big toe? I stubbed it. I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type 8 and Reflex Neurovascular Dystrophy. Urgent help needed!

It would have to be: Determined if the lump is on the skin, below the skin or if bone involvement. IF it was not there before the stubbing then it could be a contusion or possibly a fracture in which case an X-ray should be performed. ...Read more

Intermittent s pain in big toe, red hard lump, no heat, swelling, shoes don't affect it, worse at evening, feels like circulation cut off, bunion or gout?

Intermittent s pain in big toe, red hard lump, no heat, swelling, shoes don't affect it, worse at evening, feels like circulation cut off, bunion or gout?

Could be either: A painful, swollen big toe joint that occurs from time to time is likely to be gout or other type of arthritis. A permanent bump that is more painful after wearing shoes all day is more likely to be a bunion. By your description, bunion is more likely. See an orthopedic foot doctor or podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. ...Read more

Sudden hard lump over big toe joint. Lots of pain. Can't wear sneaker. Ball of foot/ankle/big toe pain. Hard time walking. What could it be?

Possible mass: It is possible that you have a soft tissue mass over your big toe joint. If there is a history of trauma to the area, it could be a ganlionic cyst. An x-ray is needed to rule out any changes in the joint that could contribute to this condition. ...Read more

Big hard lump on top of foot numbness of big and second toe, hurts to touch above but not on lump do I wait it out or go to dr?

See foot doc: It sounds like you have an exostosis (bone spur) which is putting pressure on a local nerve causing the numbness. The recommendation likely will be to shave away the bump if my assessment is correct. ...Read more

Can't see it.: Without seeing it I am just guessing, but most lumps on toes are not cause for big concern. I suspect you may have a bunion or corn or even callus. Digital mucus cysts and ganglia can show up there as well. Sometimes osteophytes and neuromas. More info please. ...Read more

Hard to tell: It doesn't sound like an abcess. Either way you should be seen by a podiatrist. Any lump that becomes larger with time can be cause for concern. Hard to say without seeing it. It could be a cyst, a skin lesion, a vascular growth, infection. Get seen.

Need X-Ray: You may have a fracture of one of the two bones in your big toe. I recommend getting an X-ray to determine the level of fracture for proper treatment and healing. Get to a foot specialist to be evaluated in person as soon as you can and protect your foot! ...Read more

On May 25th I sliced the tip of my big toe open. It's healed completely, but still hurts horribly when I "stub" it & there's a numb lump under my toe?

On May 25th I sliced the tip of my big toe open. It's healed completely, but still hurts horribly when I "stub" it & there's a numb lump under my toe?

Yikes.: The tips of toes, and fingers for that matter, just don't like to be sliced. They are typically a painful heal and the injured pain receptors will take many months to calm down completely. The numb lump is either part of the initial injury or secondary due to an altered gait. Either way, it too, will more that likely pass. I speak from experience. ...Read more

In the space of a couple of hrs, I suddenly have a lump underneath my big toe. It's soft, not really painful but kinda large. I feel it when I walk?

Mysterious Lump.: Considering the time frame of a couple of hours and assuming that this lump has not been there all along, without being noticed, there are few possibilities. A leaking blood vessel, filling the available tissue space with fluid. This leak could be caused by a low grade trauma un noticed by at the time. A bite with insertion of foreign proteins could cause a quick lump to form. Ice it and see. ...Read more
