I am a woman who works in steeltoe shoes and now I have big hard lump on side of big toes so hard feels like bone what is that and what can I do?

Callus: This is most likely callus from the big toe constantly rubbing on the side of the shoe. This may be because of the shoes or because of having a bunion. Gel type cushions may help. Or find better fitting workboots. It may also be worthwhile trying to find boys boots which may be more narrow in the heel but wide at the toe. ...Read more

A lump formed under my big toe. I rubbed it & it disappeared. I woke this morning to a dark purple bruise on the side of the toe. Is this worrisome?

A lump formed under my big toe. I rubbed it & it disappeared. I woke this morning to a dark purple bruise on the side of the toe. Is this worrisome?

Depends on progress: See how it continues healing, and if there's pain, then it's worrisome and you must see your PCP. Or if the bruise gets larger. You may need to elevate it, and put cool compresses on it for relief, and no fish oils, aspirin, Advil, (ibuprofen) Ibuprofen as it could potentially increase the bruising. Monitor it, and if it improves, you are probably OK. Time will tell shortly! ...Read more

I have a cluster of lumps on the right side of my left foot I walk a lot at work and sprained my big toe years ago sometimes it hurts me please help?

I'm a little confuse: With your question. You have two complaints yes? They sound like they are separate problems. I would recommend you see a foot doctor for both issues.
1) you should get a diagnosis for your "lumps".... Without seeing a picture it is hard to formulate a guess. 2) your big toe - the first mpj bears a lot of weight and xrays and in personal evaluation is important to rule out what is wrong. ...Read more

Hello I have a small lump on side of shin, tender to touch for about a month. I also have numbness in my big toe and dull achy pain to the knee?

Hard to say: There are multiple potential causes, I would definitely be seen for an accurate diagnosis. An MRI may give more information. It may represent a benign tumor that has gotten large enough to be pressing on the peroneal nerve, but miltie other possibilities as well. ...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?

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

I have lump on my big toe. Please help.?

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

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

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.

I have a lump on the underside if my big toe for a few months now. Its kinda hard and white. No puss or drainage if any kind. Its painful.

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

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?

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

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 smashed my foot on a wall yesterday and it's now got a big lump and swelling along the side of my foot. Is it possible I've chipped a bone?

Yes: You can not tell the severity of the injury by looking at it. You need an x ray. Make an appointment to see a podiatric physician. While waiting, use the rice principle. Rest, ice, compression and elevation. Try to stay off the foot. ...Read more
