What can cause a lump on the arch of foot?

What can cause a lump on the arch of foot?

Plantar fibroma: Ganglion cyst and many other possibilities. I recommend you get evaluated. The history is important as well. You may need diagnostic testing such as x-ray, sonogram, or MRI if the diagnosis is not obvious. Do not wait to get this taken care of because a "lump" is usually not normal. Read more

What is a lump on inner arch, swollen outer ankles & heel / arch pain when stepping mean?

What is a lump on inner arch, swollen outer ankles & heel / arch pain when stepping mean?

Arch/Ankles Issues: Typically that is the pattern of a collapsing arch where the plantar fascia gets irritated giving heel and arch pain, the outside ankle gets pinched as the heel rolls outward, and the inside of the arch bulges inward giving the lump effect. Start with changes in biomechanics with custom made orthotics to change how you walk, then add anti-inflammatory measures of icing, and possibly pt. Dr blake. Read more

The top of my foot is swollen and bruised with a lump could it be broken?

Possible: Clearly, an x-ray would help detemine whether you have a fracture. However, a hairline (stress) fracture may not be evident on x-ray until 10- 14 days post injured. The lump may be swelling or a hematoma as a result of the injury. Read more

See a doctor: May just be a bad sprain. An X-ray would rule out a fracture. Elevate your foot, apply a cool compress, stay off of it, and wrap with an ace bandage for support. See your doctor. Read more

I doubt it: After a procedure you need to be concerned you are not developing an infection. If there is any doubt let the surgeon have a second look.....Always better to be safe than sorry. Read more

I fractured my 2nd metatarsal and had cast off 3 days ago. My foot seems very swollen and I can feel a lump where the break was, should I worry? How long can it be like this, very painful when walking

I fractured my 2nd metatarsal and had cast off 3 days ago. My foot seems very swollen and I can feel a lump where the break was, should I worry? How long can it be like this, very painful when walking

Fractured bone: After wearing a cast for a fracture, there is a lump of bone called a bone callus that can sometimes be felt overlying the fracture. Your Orthopedist or Podiatrist should discuss with you post fracture Physiotherapy to help reduce the pain and swelling. Read more

I have had a lump on the bottom of big toe on right foot for 5 days. It swollen, red and burning pain, at least at times. I do have RA. I was thin?

I have had a lump on the bottom of big toe on right foot for 5 days. It swollen, red and burning pain, at least at times. I do have RA. I was thin?

How red, how hot.: I guess RA might be a possibility, but my money goes with gout as a better possibility. There could be a cellulitis secondary to overuse, trauma or even foreign body insertion. Clearly, possibilities would be better understood with a evaluation of the area and some simple testing. Read more
