Fractures are common in the fifth metatarsal of the foot. The fifth metatarsal is the longest bone on the outside of the foot that connects to the little toe.

There are two types of fractures that often occur in the fifth metatarsal: avulsion fractures and Jones fractures.

The signs and symptoms are the same for both types of fractures.

Signs and symptoms of a fifth metatarsal fracture include:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Pain, swelling, and tenderness on the outside of the foot.
  • Bruising may occur

If you have symptoms of a fifth metatarsal fracture, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Treatments for a fifth metatarsal fracture include immobilization, surgery, or bone stimulation.

For more information on fifth metatarsal fractures, you can watch the video What Is A Fifth Metatarsal Fracture?
