Foot accident: Yes, please seek medical help. You will likely be given an x-ray. You don't want any possible breaks or fractures to heal out of alignment. That would cause more problems later. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Ice skating yesterday, and now the side of my foot is swollen and very sore. What happened inside the skate?

I tripped on the top of my foot. My foot is swollen, it kind of hurts to wiggle my toes and putting constant pressure hurts too.
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be x-ray examination. If the injury was not severe enough to cause a fracture, you may watch and wait. If it does not improve in a day or so, it would be prudent to see a doctor or go to the emergency room of a hospital.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Could use your help docs! My foot is swollen and it hurts to touch it on the top of my foot. It doesn't hurt to walk on it but could it still be fractured?
Moderate pain in my ankle and along the top of my foot, especially when I walk and the top of my foot is swollen. Should I get it checked?
The top of my foot is swollen, painful and inflamed. Difficult to walk barefoot. Swollen every evening. 3 weeks. Along middle toe bone.
Stop stressing it.: Swollen painful and inflamed are certainly signs that something is amiss. Swollen in the evening and along the third toe sounds like a possible stress fracture of the 3rd metatarsal. The possibility of an infection must be considered, however my money is on the fracture. Rest, elevation and ice will help but you need to have it thoroughly evaluated and a treatment plan started. ...Read more

Request a test for gout (uric acid) and an arthritis panel to rule out any autoimmune issues like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. A bone scan (dexa) is a good idea to rule out osteoporosis/osteopenia. Also, have x-rays of your foot and/or hip been done? If not this is not a bad idea to give clues as to the diagnosis. A more detailed history and physical is needed to decide on other possibilities; to answer your question bone cancer is unlikely but not entirely impossible.
If you are unhappy with your care, seek a second opinion.
Best of luck. ...Read more
I slipped down a couple steps yesterday. My left foot is swollen tender and discolored on the top. Is it a sprain or broken?
Walk the Walk: Maybe both! If you can walk on it, it's probably a sprain or a small fracture-but if it's swollen and tender and discolored it's a moot point. Go get it examined and maybe x-ray'd. You don't want to walk too much on an injury that looks like that without finding out what's going on inside. Chances are you might get away with it but if after 2-3 days it's not getting better or is the same, see a doc. ...Read more
Hi. I dropped a shelf on the top of my foot and it’s swollen up. It’s sore to walk on but Do I need to get x rays?
Trauma pain swelling: I would recommend x rays there is the possibility of a fracture if no fracture is seen there is fragile soft tissue structures on top of your foot..... nerve ...tendons that are very superficial and easily traumatized.....I'm concerned that you have pain walking and barring weight this could mean a fracture is present if X-ray is negative I still would be suspicious for a stress fracture...... ...Read more

I have a rash looking thing on my foot on the top of the foot its very itchy and sore its red brown color my foot feels very swollen. But its not?
Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more

I was walking into work and got a sharp pain across the top of my foot where the toes connect and it has been swollen tender nothing is broke had xray?
Neuroma?: It is possible you have a 'pinched' nerve between the toes. Do you wear dressy tight-fitting shoes- that would make this worse, do you feel an occassional click? Even though the x-ray was negative you could also still have a stress fracture. It will need to be x-rayed after 10 days. ...Read more
