FAQs / Q: What’s that bump near my big toe?

A:  If it’s located on the inside of the foot, it’s likely a bunion.  This occurs when the bone behind the big toe moves toward the other foot, and the big toe itself drifts toward the 2nd toe.  If the bump is located on the top of the foot, it could represent a bone spur, or indicate that arthritis is affecting your big toe joint.  Both of these conditions are very common, but you should know that both can also become more problematic over time.  Click here to learn more about Bunions.
