Do you have glands on the bottom of feet? My husband has hard swollen lumps under his feet. He is unwell. Could they be related?

Do you have glands on the bottom of feet? My husband has hard swollen lumps under his feet. He is unwell. Could they be related?

Plantar fibroma: If what you are referring to is in the arch of the foot, it probably is a plantar fibroma. These growths usually occur in the mid-arch of the foot and can be first treated conservatively with accommodative insoles or orthotics to offload the weightbearing of the fibroma. When offloading does not reduce the weightbearing enough, the fibroma can be surgically removed. ...Read more

Toppled in chair, fell from a height of about 4 feet and hit his head on floor. 36 hrs later, has a fever, is very tired, and has swollen glands.

Toppled in chair, fell from a height of about 4 feet and hit his head on floor.  36 hrs later, has a fever, is very tired, and has swollen glands.

Not related?: The fever and swollen glands are most likely not related to the head injury but I would have the little guy checked to be sure. When he fell was he knocked out or dazed? Or did he scream immediately? Usually if they cry right away that is a good sign. Either way, see a doctor. ...Read more

See your physician: The best and most important thing to do is to see your physician. There are many things which can cause your symptoms but as a hematologist i would want to make sure you do not have something like a lymphoma (given your age possibly hodgkins lymphoma). Your physician can do a physical examination, take an appropriate history and order relevant tests and referrals to determine what is happening. ...Read more

I had surgery 10 days ago. i had skin graft from hip and it was placed on foot. its a large section of heel. Could this cause swollen glands in neck?

I had surgery 10 days ago. i had skin graft from hip and it was placed on foot. its a large section of heel. Could this cause swollen glands in neck?

No: A skin graft to heel taken from hip places the surgery below the umbilical area where nodes to groin in rare instances may show enlargement. I suspect this is a free split thickness graft that requires immobilization of leg and foot to keep graft in place until healing occurrs. Glands in neck as a response to surgery would only be associated with surgery of the H&N. ...Read more
