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

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

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
Medium soft inner lump / abscess on the left big toe for about three months now. Become larger with time. Light blue color. Doesn't hurt. What is it?
Hard to tell:
It doesn't sound like an abcess. Either way you should be seen by a podiatrist. Any lump that becomes larger with time can be cause for concern. Hard to say without seeing it. It could be a cyst, a skin lesion, a vascular growth, infection. Get seen.

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

Toe push off.: It would reasonable to assume that you baby will use his legs to forcibly push his feet against anything his foot can come in contact with. Check to see if this is not happening. Foot or toe pressure against the crib, for example. Could be the beginning of a inflamed toe secondary to pressure. ...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?
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 cluster of lumps on the right side of my left foot I walk a lot at work and sprained my big toe years ago sometimes it hurts me please help?
I'm a little confuse:
With your question. You have two complaints yes? They sound like they are separate problems. I would recommend you see a foot doctor for both issues.
1) you should get a diagnosis for your "lumps".... Without seeing a picture it is hard to formulate a guess. 2) your big toe - the first mpj bears a lot of weight and xrays and in personal evaluation is important to rule out what is wrong. ...Read more
