In brief: Your eyes
The basic diagnosis of a bunion can be made visually.
If you have a bump on the inner side of the bone behind the big toe, you have a bunion. X-rays are also important to evaluate bone structure and plan surgical correction.

In brief: Bone prominence
Bunions are a bone prominence on the inside of the foot at the base of the big toe.
This is a misalignment of the big toe joint.This can rub in shoes causing discomfort. Physical examination of the joint and x-rays are used to evaluate the deformity.Wearing shoes that don't irritate the prominence is helpful, but surgical straightening usually necessary, at some point, to correct the problem.
