What causes pain in the ball of the foot?  It feels like I have a lump there.  Is that possible? Should i go to the dr?

Ball of foot pain: Sorry to hear, yes you should see a doctor and refer to a specialist for xrays and exam.

May be : I am assuming this lump is under his skin. Biopsy will determine what it is. Most lesions are benign so until the biopsy says other ways i would not be too scared. It could be a simple ganglionic cyst to something bad such as synovial sarcoma. So biopsy will for sure help out. ...Read more
