My big toe is crossing over my second toe. I got told this may be a bunion. I am only 17. I experience no pain from it. Do i need a surgery? 

Think it Over.: Your description certainly sounds like a bunion to me. Whether or not you have it removed is entirely up to you. The usual reasons include pain, either with or without shoes.
