I have what started out as a small lump on the bottom of my foot (it has grown larger). It's not on the arch or the heal. It's painful when walking.

Have it checked: Clearly, anytime a lump develops, that increases in size and pain with ambulation, it needs to be checked out.

Itch and lump: Itching followed by the appearance of a lump suggests an allergic reaction(angioedema) or an insect bite. These should not be very tender to the touch,however. See your Physician or a podiatrist if symptoms persist. ...Read more

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. Get, yourself to a doctor and have it checked out to make sure it is benign. A podiatrist or dermatologist would be appropriate docs to handle this for you. ...Read more

See a podiatrist: This could be any number of things. Only an exam and possible x-ray will give an idea of what it is. ...Read more

Possible plantar : Fibroma? The fact there is pain warrants a clinical exam. If indeed a mass is present, biopsy is mandated. ...Read more

What can cause a lump on the arch of foot?

Plantar fibroma: Ganglion cyst and many other possibilities. I recommend you get evaluated. The history is important as well.
