lump on top of foot

Posted by Kerry U. on 11/05/02 at 07:58 (099396)

I have a big bump on top of my foot that seems to be growing . I am very active and the more I run and jump the more it hurts. The lump is very hard and about 2 inches from my ankle on my arch. Any ideas? Should I go and see my doctor. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello

This either a bone spur or a ganglion but only a physical examination with x-ray will tell you. You need to make that trip to the podiatrist.

Good Luck

I agree with Dr. Zuckerman. Simple X-Ray or diagnostic ultrasound will give you the inforamtion you want.
