I have lump on my big toe. Please help.?

I have lump on my big toe. Please help.?

Can't see it.: Without seeing it I am just guessing, but most lumps on toes are not cause for big concern. I suspect you may have a bunion or corn or even callus. Digital mucus cysts and ganglia can show up there as well. Sometimes osteophytes and neuromas. More info please. ...Read more

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

Sudden lump under my big toe. Soft, not really painful. But large. Came on quickly! Dangerous?

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.

I have a lump on the underside if my big toe for a few months now. Its kinda hard and white. No puss or drainage if any kind. Its painful.

Keratosis or wart: When the skin is repetitively rubbed from friction against shoes or between toes, the skin will thicken and form a hard bump or ridge that can be painful. Warts can also form, especially on the sole of the foot.
These are readily treated by your primary care doctor or dermatologist. ...Read more

Hi, I fell & bent my big toe back earlier, there is no brooze, it's gone a bit red, slight lump on my big toe & the pain is killing. Wot do u think?

Need X-Ray: You may have a fracture of one of the two bones in your big toe. I recommend getting an X-ray to determine the level of fracture for proper treatment and healing. Get to a foot specialist to be evaluated in person as soon as you can and protect your foot! ...Read more

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?

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

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

My 10 month old baby's bottom of big toe has what looks like a lump (soft) and is bright red? What could thos be?

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 game of Squish....: It certainly sounds like some sort of inflammatory process going on. It could be secondary to a variety of causes. Gout, infection, paronychia and cellulitis are all possible. To remove all doubt, you might consult with your own doctor or perhaps a Healthtap physician. ...Read more

Right below my big toe on 1 foot when I stand or walk it hurts, more so when standing. I think its a lump but that could just be me. Any ideas?

Unclear question: You need to visit a foot doc, your question is too vague....Is it a lump or not? If it is it needs a biopsy, if its not maybe plantar fascitiis, maybe sesamoditis.....A foot doc can help. ...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?

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

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?

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

Pebble smooth and semi-loose lump on left foot, above big toe metatarsal head. Not painful when lump is moved around. What is it?

Synovial Cyst: It sounds like a synovial cyst. If it doesn't bother you, it should be just fine if left alone... it might even go away. If it starts to bother you or continues to grow, have it checked out by your family doc. Hope this helps! ...Read more
