I have a lump about as big as a gumball on the bottom of my foot. It is attached to the bone that goes across the length of my foot and works the big toe. It has grown since it first appeared, but very slowly. It is in the arch of my foot. I don't even feel it most of the time unless I go barefoot, go sock-footed, or wear thongs, but then it is very painful when I step down on it. What could this be?
Hi Carmar -
I hope you've gotten this sorted out by now! It sounds like you could be dealing with a cyst, a problem with the tendon in the bottom of your foot, or developing some kind of bunion or bone spur. A doctor or a podiatrist could best diagnose the problem, and I hope you've seen one by now!

Look up "plantar fibromatosis" - I think I have the same thing. I'm going to try the non-invasive therapies since my lump is small. Good luck.
