Default Bump underneath my foot


It's underneath the skin, located where I circled it. It's slightly above my heel and it's on the side of my foot with the baby toe.

If I place pressure against it, it feels painful. I estimate it's size to be about a centimeter. I'm worried it might be a cancerous growth.

What do you guys think I should do?

Go to a physician and see if he can tell what it is. You might need a biopsy. It's better to be sure since you never know if it's malignant or benign. I've seen bumps like that grow to basketball sizes (no kidding), but sometimes it's just a swollen lymph node.

I thought a biopsy was a last resort kind of thing? Hope it doesn't come to that though~

It is. If they can't figure it out, they do a biopsy. Hopefully they *can* figure it out.

Don't take my word for it, but I'm fairly sure it's a bone spur and not cancer. Bone spurs are caused by fallen arches. The arch of your foot falls and the tendon doesn't want to stretch so it pulls out bits of bone from your foot. They can be very painful.

Also consider the possibility of it being a wart of some sort? Some types of warts grow underneath the skin, so they appear as a simple bump, and can be painful.

Tell your parents. If they don't know, go see a check up at the doctors. The faster you do it, the easier to cure it.

My parents don't know either. They said to monitor it and see if it'll grow. If it grows, it's most likely cancer and I'll have it checked up.

I'm most likely going to wait for a week, see if anything happens, and then maybe schedule up a doctor's appointment.

I was thinking it might've been a swollen lymph node, but bone spur might be a possibility. Don't those only go on top of the foot?

No, my mother has bone spurs on the soles of her feet. Your foot looks very flat in that picture, that's why I think it's fallen arches.

How do you walk without pain then...?

I'd go see a doctor though if it becomes increasingly painful, grows, or becomes painful to walk. You probably want to get to the doctor BEFORE it becomes painful to walk though... ._.

It's rather painful right now, lol. It's bearable though, I've dealt with bigger pain before.

I'm not sure if I have fallen arches. I'll take a side view.

I think I had one of these before, my grandpa used chinese medicine stuff (he's a doctor) to remove it. They just hurt a LOT if you accidentally bump into it.

I forgot what he told me about its other bad effects though

I'll get the doctor when it's like that. Right now it's not that painful.

Oh, I remember one thing: it heals quicker the earlier on you get treatment for it, when it starting hurting like hell, it took ~3 weeks to fully recover.

If the surface feels like dead skin and it hurts only under the bump then it is most probably warts.
Best is to look for a dermatologist.
Warts can spread to others and can cause cell damage.

And if anything hurts and doesn't heal for weeks, go see a doctor.

It doesn't seem to be warts.

Although it does seem like a bone spur from fallen arches or whatever. My foot's been hurting all over from being sore and stuff and I don't know why.

Funny, Uncommon place to grow a bump, pretty painful, don't know what caused it, worried. If I were you, I woulda went straight to the doctor instead of wasting time asking people on the forum. Pictures of it doesn't solve whats going on inside of your foot unless it was a common swollen/disease/cancer or anything else that is obvious from one look of the surface. tsktsk
