I Have A Lump On My Second Toe On Top Of The Uppermost Knuckle No Pain Should I Have It Looked At
I have a lump on my second toe on top of the uppermost knuckle no pain. Should I have it looked at?
Yes: Any lump should be examined. It may be something as simple as a corn, wart. Mucoid cyst etc. But, a lump is not normal and since we can't see it - have it checked out. It will give you peace of mind. A podiatrist would be a good doc to see for this. ...Read more

Yes just noticed that there is a hard lump on inside back of my second toe on my left foot. It is by the knuckle. What could it be & how to fix it?
Soft Corn: This is the effect of narrow footwear on a bony excrescence on the toe. A soft spacer might help and wider shoes would help. Podiatrists and a some orthopedists will grind or bite of the offending bone. I would of for the spacer an better fitting shoes. ...Read more

Hi, I have a small (penny sized) lump on the top both my feet, underneath the start of the second toe. It feels mainly like hard skin.?
Underneath=Callus: I believe you are referring the area under the foot at the base of the 2nd toe. This indeed sounds like a callus which is an accumulation of dead skin. This becomes hard and dense from the impact of weight bearing. This area under the 2nd toe is a fairly common location to get one. One gets this from being active and also shows there is some weight transfer to this area away from the big toe. ...Read more

Big toes painful as there quite big and is stiff left one is worse hurts when walking now second toe is bent to side and has lump on it on left foot?
English Bunion: You have given a pretty good description of a typical bunion deformity of the great toes. The great toe is also shifting laterally or toward the little toe causing a subsequent hammering of the second toe. The stiffness is due to the excessive bone growth around the joint which not only causes pain but can also change the way you walk. All flannel aside, you need to have it evaluated for a fix. ...Read more
My wife has a hard, dime size (maybe smaller) lump around the middle/back of her second toe. Painless and on the right foot. She's a yoga instructor.
To remove, or not.: I'm not quite sure if you are describing the undersurface or the top of the toe. Either way, these seemingly hard lumps most often involve soft tissue cysts such as synovial cysts. They can appear hard, because they are packed with a viscous jelly like fluid. There is the possibility that a boney enlargement is also involved and only an x-ray can verify that. Check with surgeon for treatment. ...Read more

Since painful, you should see a podiatrist. ...Read more
Right toe is bent inwards touching my second toe, what feels like a pain full lump or spot under the skin at the side any suggestions please Painful?
Drifting Toe.: Your description sounds like a consequence of a specific variant in "bunion" deformities. The drifting of the great toe, to the right, is being interfered with by the more stable second toe. This bumping together is causing an inflammatory pain. Most likely this is a result of genetics, foot type, shoes, socks and lifestyle. A foot specialist could offer some time tested treatment alternatives. ...Read more
I woke up to a small painful lump/knot on the side of my second toe, near the joint. Throughout the day the toe became more painful and began to swell?
Night Moves..: It might be possible that you managed to traumatize you toe during your sleep. Not necessarily an acute, severely inflicted damage, but a more subtle low intensity type. To remove all doubt, within a day or two, have it evaluated by a specialist if it does not start resolving. ...Read more

I am having pain in my second toe (none at base of toe) at the last knuckle and tip of the toe. It is an achy pain that seems to stay even with rest.
OH my aching toe!: You have provided a pretty good description of the distal phalanx and distal interphalangeal joint of the second toe. Often times this toe is a bit longer than the others. It is because of the extra length that this toe can be bumped or jammed more readily. Some times this type of injury is not felt initially, but is noticed some time after the fact. Often, Motrin and protecting the toe help. ...Read more
I am experiencing a lump on the top of my foot and now there is a second. They are soft and movable. Also have one on forehead and left hand. Thanks?
Cysts: Your history suggests that these are cysts, often called ganglion cysts when near tendons and joints. The forehead one may not be the same type. A physical exam and ultrasound can give you more information including the diagnosis and treatment options. Generally speaking, these tend to be benign and non-dangerous. In orthopedics, we often will drain these with the guidance of ultrasound. ...Read more

I've had a peasized hard bump on top of my big toe for years...in between knuckle and joint. No pain, but seems to be getting bigger. What is this?
Cyst: One examination by an orthopaedist will give u your answer. Sounds like a ganglion cyst @ your age. Older patients in this location may be a mucous or degenerative (arthritic) cyst. Other 'nodules' etc. May be in play with a more detailed history / examination. Get examined! Best of Luck! ...Read more
Itchy bump on side of big toe knuckle and on top of knuckle. Isn't painful, but very itchy and irritated when wear close-toed shoes.
Try simple first.: I am not clear as to which knuckle you are describing. It is either the joint in the big toe itself or the joint where the big toe meets the main body of the foot. If the bump becomes worse while wearing a certain shoe style, then change the shoes. This may be the easiest solution. Possibly there is an underlying fungal infection. Try using a topical anti fungal. Have it examined by a doctor. ...Read more

I have a bump on my second toe. It hurt anytime it touches something and random times. It's on top of the toe behind the nail, closer to me? Help please
Cyst: It's impossible to diagnose a "bump" sight unseen. Sometimes, a mucinous cyst can develop just before the toenail. These often require draining and sometimes even surgical removal to resolve. Your best bet is to have a podiatrist exam it and offer treatment options. ...Read more

Have it checked out: Severe pain on the top of the foot feeling like a charlie horse is not a common finding. Your recent activity history, how much your run or walk for exercise can affect this. If it's acute and relieved by pain meds, then that's not as much a problem as if it's been continuous without relief. Best is to have it checked out by your doctor to see what the exam shows, and to know for sure what it is. ...Read more
