I have a large lump on the bottom of the arch of my foot in the middle. It itches and sometimes it burns. In two years, it has grown twice in size. What should I do?

It is mandatory: This be examined by a doctor. It might be something benign like a plantar fibroma or a ganglion. Or, you can g-d forbid have a malignant lesion.

Plantar fibroma: Ganglion cyst and many other possibilities. I recommend you get evaluated. The history is important as well. You may need diagnostic testing such as x-ray, sonogram, or MRI if the diagnosis is not obvious. Do not wait to get this taken care of because a "lump" is usually not normal. ...Read more
