The outer edge of my foot hurts. There seems to be a lump that is very tender to the touch. It's painful to walk. What could this be?

In brief: Bunion, bunionette?

Depends on where on the side of the foot it is located.
.. inside/outside, base of a toe. Consult with a podiatrist and/or orthopedic surgeon, wear proper fitting shoes that do not put excessive pressure on the area. Follow the advice given by the specialists.
