In brief: Bunion

It sounds as though they where referring to a bunion.

In brief: Bent

That would have been a good time to ask her. It sounds like you have a bunion

In brief: Happy feet

When your big toe bends towards your other toes, it can pull a lot on your big toe joint.
Over time, it can cause a bunion. Your toe angle and future bunions tell us how you're walking & if your shoes fit well. The real question: how do you feel? If you have any foot, knee, hip or back pain, then it's worth talking with your doc. Happy feet = happy body all over, now & later. Good luck!
