It's not on the metatarsal bone, but maybe the tendon? Half way between my pinkey toe and my ankle. I applied pressure and rubbed a lot one day and it seemed to "crunch" and disapear, only to come back a few weeks later more painfull and much larger. Please help, what's wrong?
You'll have to see your doctor or podiatrist to figure how what this is. It could be something called a ganglion cyst -which is a mass of benign (non-cancerous) soft-tissue that sometimes forms on the top of the foot or the hand. If that's what it is its generally harmless but it may need to get taken care of if its painful. Generally these cysts occur where some repetitive trauma has occurred - which might suggest that your shoes are rubbing that spot too much.
Answer to previous inquiry seems logical. There is no pain associated with this lump. Repetitive motion would be the result of daily exercise. I am a runner. The lump has formed directly beneath the tip of the shoe's tongue where the tip of the tongue meets the leg. But my question is what do I do about it?
