In severe cases, the inflamed tissue can be felt as lumps on the bottom of the foot in the heel area. ...Read more

Lump Science.: Although it is possible for the heel pain and lump presence to be related, it is more than likely not so probable. Lumps need to be defined and appreciated in a more definable manner. Size, color, temperature, mobility and speed of growth are just a few of the factors to consider with soft tissue masses, especially in the foot. With the help of a specialist a more definitive reason is possible. ...Read more
