I have this bump type thing on my pinky toe but it's on the inside. If I wear tight shoes for awhile it does hurt, what could this be?

Toe Bone Spur. The bump is caused by the toe bones in the little toe putting pressure on the toe bones of the fourth toe. The toe bones(phalanges) have sharp areas sticking out. If the sharp areas line up just perfect, than the skin in between them becomes irritated. In time, the tissue becomes firm and you feel it. If you had your little toe x-rayed, there will be only two phalanges, not three. Easily fixed.

I have a lump on my toe the one next to the pinky toe, and it has been there for years. It doesn't hurt at all even if I wear tight shoes. I can grab it and when I do it feels like a solid but yet soft lump. I've always remembered having it though?

Tissue growth, as is. our entire vehicle (body). Your self-exam findings are consistent with likely healthy tissue, though apparently it long ago grew beyond what usually occurs for the 4th toe (internal controls still poorly understood). If you felt the tissue is cosmetically displeasing to you, then it could likely be removed by any physician with some basic plastic surgery (seamstress work for tissues) experience. Read more...

I have buzzing feeling in my pinky toe its off and on seems like it only occurs when I wear tight shoes Idk if that causes it been stressed over it.

Could be nerve. or a corn, if it only happens with tight shoes they are probably putting pressure on the toe, this can compress a nerve or force the toe to rub on the 4th toe creating a corn or on the shoe on the outside of the toe to create a corn also. Easy fix is don't wear the shoes that cause the problem. Read more...

My pinky toe on right foot hurts in shoes. Feels fine barefoot or in sandals. No bumps or red. On inside by nail but not ingrown. Shoes not tight.

Phalangeal spur. If you really think about it, all nails are technically ingrown, they are just not symptomatic. There could be an underlying reason for the pain if not caused directly by the shoes. To remove all doubt, an exam including an x-ray may bring into view the real problem. Read more...
