Abnormal, soft, painful,swelling on top of foot

Posted by Nicole Stevenson on 9/11/03 at 12:18 (129590)

I have a painful swelling on top of my right foot, exactly in the middle of it. It is soft, and is very painful when walking. I am extremely active in Aerobics and karate. It started about 3 weeks ago, it has become more painful as days go by. What could be causing this? Thanks a million.

This may be a stress fracture with one of your metatarsal bone. Very important to seek treatment before complete fracture of the bone
