Why do I have a bump on the side of my toe?

 

A:

If you have a big bump on the side of your big toe that looks like this:

 

 

You may have a bunion and you should see a podiatrist for an evaluation and treatment. You can treat some of the pain caused by a bunion at home by wearing appropriate footwear, using orthotic devices or foot pads in your shoes, performing foot exercises, and more.

 

But, a bunion is a bone deformity, and there is nothing you can do to fix that without the help of a podiatrist. Depending on the severity of the bunion and the needs of the patient, bunion surgery, or a bunionectomy, may be necessary. For more information, visit our page on bunions or our page on bunion surgery, or contact us online or at (888) 713-0906. You can also watch the video above How Do I Get a Bunion?
