I had a bunionectomy surgery and the site feels fine. I've developed a lump on ball of foot which is painful. What is it?

A few things...

A lot depends on if the "lump" is IN the skin or UNDER the skin. It could be any of a number of tumors, or more commonly, a benign process known as a plantar fibroma. If your surgery was very recently, it could also be a hematoma, or gathering of clotted blood. See a podiatrist for an exam.

Dr. Eric R. Tepper answered:

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

Ankle
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.

I have a lump under my third right toe that was told to be a ganglion. Since, I've developed another lump above the ball of foot. No pain, under skin?

Hard to say

Skin
There are a number of potential causes and a detailed exam can usually tell the cause. Having a lump above the "ball" of the foot is usually associated with the insertion of the Achilles tendon and can be seen in chronic tendinitis. Causes of lumps under the third toe can include a neuroma, a ganglion, a corn among many possibilities. Thank you for the question.

What do I do? Swelling under ball of foot underneath small toe?

Swelling

Lip_swelling
This sounds like capsulitis of the joint. This usually involves biomechanical problems causing excessive pressure. See your podiatrist for an exam .

Dr. Pamela Kirby answered:

Pain in ball of foot every morning?

Several things come

Bone
There are many things that can cause this pain. To name a few: Atrophied fat pads which mean that you are walking on bone, neuroma which is like a thickening of a nerve, capsulitis which means there is inflammation in a joint,. I think that making an appointment at your local podiatrist might be the best answer. Good luck.. Dr. Kirby

Many things

Without specifics it is tough to say. There are many things that cause foot pain. Fractures, nerve entrapment, sprains/strains, bone tumors, infections... The most common cause in my office is inflammation of the joints. I would recommend evaluation by a podiatrist.
