Bump On Top Of The Foot March 17, 2014

At Hollowbrook Foot Specialists, one of the things we often get asked about is a painful bump on top of the foot.  Knowledge is power, so read on to learn more about the reasons for these painful bumps on the top of your feet.

What causes a bump on top of the foot?

The most likely reason for developing a bump on top of the foot is trauma.  Sometimes people know that they dropped a book on their foot.  Some don’t remember an injury to the area at all.  However, it doesn’t take much agitation to form a bump on top of the foot.

What makes the bump on top of the foot?

The bump itself is usually one of two things, a bone spur or a cyst.

  • Bone Spur: A bone spur is a small, pointed piece of bone that projects out from the normal bone around joints.  This irritates the surrounding area, causing a bump.
  • Cyst:  A cyst is a sack filled with fluid or a jelly-like substance that forms from the tissue that covers tendons and joints.  The bump can switch between getting smaller or larger with time, which can be confusing and scary.

Does a bump on top of the foot need treatment?

When the bump on top of your foot is causing redness, irritation, or even pain, you should get it looked at.  Although most bumps are benign, not all of them are, so it is a good idea to have the doctor take a look.  Dr. Schlam may be able to find the cause of your bump while examining your feet, but remember that an x-ray may be needed to find the exact cause.  Schedule an appointment to visit our Wappingers Falls office by calling (845) 298 – 9074 or by clicking here.

Dr. Schlam and everyone at Hollowbrook Foot Specialists would like to wish you a very happy and prank free April Fool’s Day.
