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

I've had a hard lump under my big toe just below the joint size of a pea for a month last 2 days very painful?

Can shoes cause lumps on feet? Have a painful and slightly bruised lump under my big toe but haven't hurt it.

Can shoes cause lumps on feet? Have a painful and slightly bruised lump under my big toe but haven't hurt it.

You (s)choose: I look at it this way. The slightly bruised lump was caused by:
1. Pressure on your toe with absolutely no involvement with the shoe.
2. Pressure on your toe caused by the toe and the shoe.
3. Pressure on the toe caused only by the shoe, having nothing to do with the toe's activity.

I'm betting on number 2. ...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 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?

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: 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. ...Read more

Biopsy: Need more info....This could be lots of things. Things the doctor will want to know is if the lump is uniform in size, if there is any coloration to it, is it growing, does it have well defined margins, and is it regular shape with symmetry. Safest thing is to have it checked and if the doctor thinks it needs it, biopsy can be done to check it. ...Read more

Painless lump on top of toe has got bigger each year, had for 10+ years?

'Lump': It is difficult to discern what type of 'lump' you have. There are soft tissue lesions and tumors, bone lesions and tumors, and then there are contracted joints and foot deformities that appear as 'lumps' against the skin (like bunions and hammertoes). There is really not enough information here to help you with a diagnosis. I suggest you see a medical professional for better evaluation. ...Read more

How to treat a lump on my toe?

See podiatry: Your description is a bit broad to answer the question. A little more history about the condition is needed -- did you hurt it, how long has it been there, have you attempted to treat it, do you have any medical conditions that may have induced it, etc. I would advise that you see a podiatrist to have it examined. ...Read more

Why is there a lump on my third toe?

Might be a hammertoe: Need to see a podiatrist for further evaluation. You may have contraction of your toe which is called hammertoe deformity. It may also be a corn which is as a result of contraction of the toes and pressure from shoes. It could also be some type of soft tissue mass. So do see a podiatrist for the right diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

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 don't feel anything with my toes its all just pain in the lumps on feet so rules out mortans correct? What kinda dr do I need to see for this probl

Not feeling it: If you do not have any feeling in both of your feet, this could mean that you have a nerve condition that leads back to the spine. If your can only feel the vagueness of a dull lump, this could point to what is called neuropathy. This has many causes which range from diabetes to arthritis. Evaluation from your primary physician is warranted. A podiatrist could evaluate and refer to neurology. ...Read more

However, without being able to see it and because you used the word "lump"it warrants an inspection by a doctor. ...Read more

I: I am not sure that I am visualizing this foot issue well. It sounds like there is some form of mass (unknown size) on sole of the foot that is painful and is causing the toes and foot to be swollen. I cannot diagose this. However, your description makes me wonder if this is an infection. Do not know if this is an acute or a chronic problem. If the mass is red, hot, tender, painful or draining that is sigificant. The surrounding swelling is of concern. If there is fever or red streaking that is even more concerning. If you have the above described symptoms, recommend that you go to the emergency room now. Regardless would see a podiatrist or your doctor to determine the cause. ...Read more

Such lumps in this area usually involve soft tissue, but can include bone. It could also result from an infectious process.

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

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

Aboligothalomatubro!: I have the same thing and it's a lethal terminal Aboligothalomatubro tumor. JUST KIDDING! But I do have the same thing. You are correct, most probably a defect in the fascia and the muscle bulges out a little. Shouldn't be a big deal unless it bothers you. It can be surgically corrected but has never seemed worth it to me and I'm three times older than you and still doing lots of sports, etc. ...Read more

Possible Neuroma: This sounds like a neuroma or a plantar fibroma. It is not knowable in this format but if it is one of these they are not cancerous. Liniments with avoiding any tip toes, tight forfoot shoes or squatting have helped many people. Sometimes a steroid injection relieves the symptoms and some have to be addressed surgically. ...Read more
