Has she checked with a foot Dr.she might have what they call Ganglings I just had surgery for it and I thought I had just two of them when they went in I had seven of them.and some where very old.They felt like lumps in side my foot that at times would hurt real bad some times they felt big.They tell me they usally don't have to do surgery for them.there is ways of breaking them if you catch them in time.they are lumps filled with a liquide.I'm not a Dr.so make sure you get there advice.

HI THERE.
i had the same kind of surgery last year. i too have a bump , between the toenail, and the big toe joint. Its fixed and never moves. Actually i have that on both feet in the same place. The dr tells me its extra growth of bone. So i seem to be stuck with it...and although its not REAL large, it gets red and irritated when wearing certain shoes. Also when my feet swell, it gets quite big. If i had this to do over again, i would never have had the surgery. I seem to have more problems now than i ever did before.
Julie
