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

In brief: 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.

In brief: Fracture care

Lump and pain pretty normal.
When do you start therapy? Keep you follow up appointments and call your provider if things worsen. Hope this helps. Good luck.
