I have pain on top of my foot, mainly when i walk. Half way of the foot toward the left side of the left foot the pain started about 2 weeks ago, it happened after the pain in my heel disappeared

Without : Without more information, it's impossible for me to give you a meaningful answer. If you've been having heel pain and walking in such a way as to avoid pain in your heel, it's possible the pain you're getting now is just from overuse in walking to avoid pain. But it's purely a guess on my part. I recommend you see a podiatrist and have your foot properly evaluated to find out exactly what's wrong. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

I have pain in the top of my foot pain is worse after I sit and then stand up. I was wondering if being flat footed can cause this?

Possibly: Flat feet can cause a lot of foot and ankle pains. However, if you have swelling along the top of your foot, you may have a stress fracture, especially if the pain is gets worse the longer you are on your foot. A good arch support, rest and x-rays to rule out a stress fracture is advised. I hope this helps. ...Read more

You may need a medic: If your pain doe snot settle down within 7-10 days you will require a doctor to examine your foot and do x-rays of the foot bones. This is one way to find the cause of your foot pain. Anything that hurts with weight bearing points to bones of the foot as the cause. I hope you havee not broken one of the small bones there. ...Read more

I'm having pain in the top of my foot. Theres no swelling but a small lump there. Is it possible that I have a cyst or something similar?

Foot pain: You could have a cyst, called a ganglion cyst, but there are other things that could cause it too...Like arthritis, or a healed fracture, to name a few. You should have this evaluated by your physician, especially if it is getting bigger, who will be able to give you a better idea.
