See a Podiatrist.: This sounds like it is probably the base of your fifth metatarsals causing some pressure callouses. May also be plantar fibromas but less likely if it is on both feet in the same spot. See a podiatrist, get some x-rays. Probably a very simple problem with a simple solution. If the first doctor you see suggests surgery, get a second opinion. ...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

Splinter on front ride side of foot 3 months ago. Can't find anything with needle, painful when touching around the place and when gently striking over it or when I hit something. Any danger?

Splinter treatment: If the foot hurts where the splinter penetrated 3 months ago, you may have a small foreign body reaction occurring. Your body may try to "wall off" the splinter by creating a scarred mass of tissue around the foreign item. This may hurt when you touch it. You may need an x ray for better diagnosis and a small procedure to remove the mass under local anesthesia. ...Read more

Don't mess with it.: If you are running painlessly with a dime size lump on your foot, I see no reason to have someone fool with it. The lump will do one of three things. Go away, stay the same or enlarge. Two out of three ain't bad. Leave it alone unless the nature of the lump changes radically. ...Read more
