What are those lumps?

Posted by JoanneG on 3/14/01 at 12:31 (041452)

I have noticed recently that I have a small lump located between the toes and the heel of both feet. It seems to be attached to a cord of some sort. I have rather flat feet and do a lot of treadmill jogging. Sometimes I have a bit of pain at the beginning of my workouts but then it lessens.Am I hurting my feet by continuing?

This is a hard one to comment on with out examining the lump. It could be a thickening of the plantar fascia called a plantar fibrosis and then it could be a host of other things. This should be checked out by your podiatrist to determine what it is. Dr. B.
