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

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

Right toe is bent inwards touching my second toe, what feels like a pain full lump or spot under the skin at the side any suggestions please Painful?

Drifting Toe.: Your description sounds like a consequence of a specific variant in "bunion" deformities. The drifting of the great toe, to the right, is being interfered with by the more stable second toe. This bumping together is causing an inflammatory pain. Most likely this is a result of genetics, foot type, shoes, socks and lifestyle. A foot specialist could offer some time tested treatment alternatives. ...Read more

I woke up to a small painful lump/knot on the side of my second toe, near the joint. Throughout the day the toe became more painful and began to swell?

Night Moves..: It might be possible that you managed to traumatize you toe during your sleep. Not necessarily an acute, severely inflicted damage, but a more subtle low intensity type. To remove all doubt, within a day or two, have it evaluated by a specialist if it does not start resolving. ...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

Sounds like: A corn, cyst or enleargement of bone. Try to cushion with toe separator or sponge /rubber. This will keep toes from rubbing against each other. Shoe that do not squeeze toes together will also be helpful. See podiatrist for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment options. ...Read more

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

Left big toe tendon has lumps bumps and swelling along it and big toe is painful. Throbbing pain in big toe too?

I would: See a foot doctor. The question is are the lumps or bumps really on the tendon or in the subcutaneous tissues.....either way you should be examined, much easier to make a diagnosis like that in person...
Possible ganglionic cyst is an example without seeing you but if I saw your foot inperson I would know right away if that's what you had. ...Read more

My toe nail fell due to damage during sports; a healthy nail grew, but the side of my toe is painful when walking, sometimes bleeds & I see a lump.

Ingrown toenail: An ingrown toenail occurs when the nail plate cuts into the skin on the side, causing bleeding and inflammation of the affected skin. The skin can sometimes try to grow over the nail plate, causing a "lump". This can lead to a vicious cycle of infection and pain. Factors that can exacerbate this include wearing tight shoes and activity in sports. A doctor can perform a partial toenails removal ...Read more

Left foot- I have a painful lump on the inside of my heel & pain running along the outside of foot from mid foot to little toe. What is causing it?

Pain: Without a physical exam, that is extremely difficult to answer. Based on your description I would suspect infracalcaneal bursitis with peroneal tendonitis secondary to plantar fasciitis. That is speculation. Your best solution is to see your podiatrist for an exam, x rays and a diagnosis. ...Read more
