I have rather large lumps on top of both feet. They are hard and very painful. When I tap on them they send tingles across the top of my feet. ?

In brief: See a Podiatrist

Unless we can see them is difficult to know what could be.
One possibility is lipoma ( growth of fatty tissue). Other possibility neuroma ( a growth of a nerve). I cannot rule out fluid from congestive heart disease, or other conditions. My suggestion...Go to see a foot specialist (podiatrist).

In brief: Ganglion cysts

Gangion cysts are caused by tears in the tendon sheath or joint capsule allowing lubricating fluid to escape and fill up like a balloon.
In certain locations they may put pressure on nerves which cause shooting pain and tingling. They can be aspirated however they usually return unless surgically removed.
