The BIG Picture

Something you probably shouldn’t ignore… 

We’ve all been told not to ignore a lump or bump on our body. 

The foot is no different than any other part of the body in this regard. 

Even though the vast majority of the lumps and bumps on the foot aren’t serious, ignoring one could lead to long-term consequences. 

Some of the areas of the foot where lumps or bumps are common are: 

  1. Back of the heel 
  2. Outside of the mid foot  
  3. Top of the mid foot 
  4. Big toe joint 

Many lumps and bumps on the foot are from excessive bone growth. 

Without getting too technical, the body can over-produce bone for several reasons. 

These excessive bone growth situations can lead to nerve, tendon or joint problems. 

The complaint we hear often from patients is that the shoe is rubbing on the  lump or bump. 

Lumps and bumps can have long-term consequences if not addressed early enough. 

Surgery can be avoided in most cases if early intervention is deployed. 

A Ganglion Cyst is another version of a lump or bump on the foot. 

These can be drained or removed without much trouble. 

A lump or bump can also occur from chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis and Gout. 

THE BIG PICTURE: ignoring a lump or bump on your foot, hoping it will just disappear, isn’t wise. 

Other than wearing shoe gear that doesn’t irritate the bump, there isn’t a home remedy that will resolve or dissolve the enlargement. 

We specialize in evaluating and treating lumps and bumps on the feet and ankles. 

Our entire team is here to serve you.
