Lump top of foot

Common Questions and Answers about Lump top of foot


Avatar f tn Hello, I wrote in a question recently about a hard pea sized lump on top of my foot. I appreciate the answers I received and now I have another one. The lump is hard like bone and is not painful. It is located on the outside edge between my little toe and ankle. It may have been there awhile and I have just noticed it or it could be a new occurance. I went to my family physician today and he ordered an x-ray. The lump also does not move. The x-ray did not show anything.
Avatar f tn I have a dry round bump on the top of my right foot. No amount of filing down and moisturiser is shifting it. It looks like elephant skin, does not itch or hurt and when I press it, it feels tingly/numb and the feeling goes through to my toes. Anyone got any ideas? Please note I also have Dermatitis Herpetiformis (I am a Coeliac). Photo attached.
Avatar m tn I'm a runner and recently got a pain on top of foot, as if my laces were too tight 9they may have been!) recently been doing a lot of off road running on uneven hard surface. it seems to be in the Extensor Hallucis Brevis area and there is a squashy lump the size of a smallish coin in that area, which isn't really painful to touch. If I loosen my laces in that area I can walk and do a bit of running without too much discomfort.
Avatar n tn I have developed a hard lump on the top of my foot which is painful. It is on the same bone as the big toe, only further up the foot. I also have a flat foot. My Doctor has referred me to a Podiatrist but this may take a while. Any suggestions.
Avatar f tn It started with the top of my foot hurting, like someone had stepped on it. I now have a hard lump that is painful to the touch. I am wondering if this serious and if I need to see a podiatrist. I am a little concerned about what this could be.
Avatar f tn It is difficult to comment without examination. A hard lump on top of the foot is probably a ganglion or a neurofibroma. A ganglion is a sac-like swelling or cyst formed from lining of a joint or from a tendon. A neurofibroma is a collection of nerve and fibrous tissue. If it is causing pain and pressure symptoms it needs to be removed. Please consult your PCP to start with and get a referral for a surgeon. Take care!
Avatar f tn I have a question. I have a lump that seems attached to the bone on the top of my foot. (From the diagram I looked up it seems to be on the 2nd cuneiform) it does not move and by that I mean it feels like it is anchored to the bone, it has gotton bigger over the last few days. (No injuries, no trauma).The lump does not hurt but my foot aches and it travels up to my ankle and almost up to my hip.I couldnt sleep last night because of the dull ache and cramps.
Avatar n tn I have a high risk of fracture after the surgery? The lump presented itself last January. It's on the top of my foot, roughly, extends from the ankle joint and is on 3/4 of the foot. I'm not sure about the endoscopic resection...I just know I'm not spending the night in the hospital. Okay, I think I've answered all your questions. Let me know if you have any more, but hope this helps. Have a great holiday!
Avatar m tn Many of the top issues of today can be linked back to the ecological degradation of our planet due to overpopulation. Economy, immigration, global warming, lack of medical resources, dirty air, dirty water, and on and on. If the social engineering wing of the RNC truly wanted to address the issue of abortion, they could simply disassociate the issue away from family planning and birth control.
Avatar f tn Hello On Christmas Eve a solid wooden bench fell from a height and hit the top of my foot. A lump the size of a 2p piece appeared and the bruising came out within 24hrs, this lasted for 2-3 weeks. My foot now is still a bit tender when I put on my boots / push the area.
Avatar f tn Doesn't bother me so I left it alone. Then about a year ago I got a lump on the top of my left foot that turned out to be ganglion also. Had it removed in Oct. Two months later another one appeared a little further up on the top of my foot. Had it drained and steroid injected. Three months later the same thing happened, but it was a bit bigger. Had it drained, no steroid. The next day it came back, but bigger than ever. Had it removed three weeks ago.
Avatar f tn Almost as if someone had stuck something down in to my foot, but left some of it protruding out of the top of my foot near my toes. All of the skin around it seemed undisturbed and felt normal, but this knot was extremely hard and felt rough.
Avatar f tn I am a 14 year old girl. And there is this lump on the ball of my left foot aligned with my middle toe. It is about the size of a pencil eraser and is kind of painful when I walk. Not a sharp pain, just a sore ache. It seems to be covered in callous now, but before that I pricked it with a needle and poured peroxide on it. Sure enough, it fizzed up due to infection. I imagine it would do the same now, but it's hard to get to because of all the tough skin over it.
Avatar n tn A few days ago my boyfriend was being romantic and was stroking my hair when all of a sudden the top of my head felt like he took a bat to me. I let out a scream and grabbed my head and that is when I noticed an indentation on my head. The whole area was so sensitive that just moving the hair was painful. At first I thought it was because I was wearing a hair band, but it is now 4 days later and the indentation is still there and it is still sensitive, especially in the center.
Avatar f tn On going to bed the pain completely shifted away from my leg to the top part of my foot/ big toe and I noticed I had what looked like a small bit of bone sticking out. I got up early in the night and initially it painful putting weight on my foot, however after a few steps the pain decreased. On getting up this morning the lump on my foot has disappeared, however I have some redness stretching from about 1cm below my big toe to just above my ankle.
Avatar n tn I've had a blood clot on the top of my foot for the last 3 months. I have unsuccessfully treated it with 325mg of aspirin, ibuprofen/naproxen, heat, elevation, and wrapping it. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? If so, did it resolve itself? How concerned should I be about the occasional thigh/calf tightness? Should I be very concerned that that clot remains after so long? I have come very close to cutting the length of the vein (approximately 1/4").
Avatar n tn Hi, I just saw my doctor yesterday, and I had a lump on top of my right foot. He x-rayed the foot and it came out normal. He told me I had a cyst on my foot and used a needle to extract a clear gel out of my foot. Today, the lump is bigger than before and looks like a huge mosquito bite. My foot is also a bit on the stiff side. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn my 7 year old daughter has had a soft lump come up on the top of her foot,she says it doesnt hurt but its worrying the life out of me!!
Avatar n tn I too have this problem. the top of my butt crack (all the way from the very top to the anal opening) is red, irritated and cracking. it feel like the skin splits when i sit and the crack is open(?). and if the shower hits it the wrong way it hurts. I went to the doctor yesterday and she said it is a bacterial/fungal infection. I forgot the name of it. But it's because the skin between your two butt cheeks rubs together and is moist.
Avatar n tn on 9/26 saw podiatrist because still couldn't move toes, got a burning sensation in that lump on top of my foot often, and sometimes it feels like it has a twitch (like you get in your eye). She reviewed 2nd xrays (this time weight bearing), said nothing broke, and lump could be 'cyst, ligment, or tendon'. Ordered boot, said to wear it only during day, and that I didn't need to be seen again. As of today, I still can't walk normally, can't move 3rd, 4th, or 5th toe.
Avatar f tn Another way to describe it is that it feels like I have very severe bruising on the tops of my feet. (There is a very small bit of bruising on the lump on my right foot) but the pain and lump is on both feet. The weird thing is that noone can tell how excruciating the pain is as I can't really limp - bc it's both of my feet, it looks like I am walking normally... until I stumble or something. The pain is sooooo so bad. Im seriously about to break emotionally from this pain.
Avatar f tn Inbetween the heel and top of the ankle is a pea sized lump. It's VERY tender to the touch. I can feel it throbbing at times if I have been moving or standing a lot. It hurts to stand and walk on this foot. I have been trying to do the heel to toe method, but it's nearly impossible. I end up walking on my tip toes with this foot. It's very painful on a scale of 1-10 it's a 9.9 A nurse I work with thinks it's a sprain but I don't recall doing anything that would cause a sprain.
Avatar m tn The thing that puzzles him though is that some kind of painless fiber has been growing under the skin starting from this lump to about the top-middle of my foot where it seems to have glued itself to under my skin. At this spot where it is glued to my skin it is painful when I touch it. The rest of the "fiber", or cord, or wire, as it seems to be when I touch it (it moves under the skin as if it was a fibrous wire but not where it ends where it seems to be sticking to the flesh).
Avatar f tn I noticed a hard, bony lump on the top of my left foot about the size of two peas. It is located between my little toe and the fourth toe, about 2 inches up towards my ankle. It seems to be getting bigger and the place where it is located tingles continuously. It also hurts really bad when I put my bare foot on a step, it hurts right under my little toe.
Avatar m tn Some time I have a slight pain in my left year, Some times a sound of water moving when I move my jaw, And also pain all over the left side of my head... From top of the head till the shoulder on the left..
Avatar f tn I have a small lump about the size of a pea on my forearm about 4 inches from my elbow. It is very sore to the touch. Any ideal what this could be?
Avatar n tn For almost as long as I can remember I have had a small non painful lump on the sole of my foot. It never hurt and I thought I had it from splinter I never took out as a child. Recently during a pedicure the pedicurist decided she could scrape it off and she pulled off the top of it. That is when it started to hurt and has since become more and more painful. I thought it may have gotten infected and I went to the Dr. Much to my surprise the Dr. started talking about Biopsys and cancers.
Avatar n tn I decided to soak my feet in slightly warm water with dead sea salts later today, and when I took my feet out, I noticed a smaller, less than pea sized red lump on the bottom of my left heel, and the rugburn feeling rash/lumps on my second toe spread to the side of my big toe and to the top of my fourth toe on my left foot and the side of that toe between the pinky and my fourth toe. I don't know what this is, but it seems to be spreading pretty fast.
Avatar f tn My daughter, 14, has a knot on the outside of her ankle just above the knobby bone and on the top of her foot. She hurt these two areas at separate times while running. She is a softball player and runs track. We had both areas x-rayed and the x-rays did not show a fracture in either area. We have applied ice and heat and also given her anti-inflamatory medicine for 8 weeks. She tried jogging again and it is hurting again and seems to be worse. I have made an appointment with a podiatrist.
