Bumps on my heels. What are they?

Hi. I have bumps on the inside of both heels. They are soft and painless and are in a "cluster". Does anyone else have these? If so, what are they?
They seem to change in size from day to day depending on how long I'm on my feet. I wear no shoes that irritate my feet so I have no clue what's causing this. I have a doctor's appt next month but was just wondering what may be going on here. So weird.
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

I also have bumps, but only when I place weight on my foot. I was told years ago that they were just fatty deposits for cushion on my heel-nothing to worry about.

I think you might be referring to: "Piezogenic papules" do a search and see if thats it.

Re: Bumps on my heels. What are they?

I think that's what I've got. I did a search and found some pics of it. Those pics look a lot like my heels. And the description is right on the money. I think I've got them on my wrists too. At least now I know the doctor won't say "Oh, it's nothing".
Thanks for pointing me in that direction.
