Lump on left side of my left foot

I have a strange growth on the left side of my left foot about 3 inches down from my small toe. I noticed it several months ago but it hasn't caused me any pain. I looked at my right foot to see if I have a matching growth that was perhaps a natural part of my foot but it wasn't there. It sticks out from my foot about 3/8" and the width is about the same. Very hard like it's a bone extention. It's just now starting to hurt but not so bad that I can't walk on it, it's just a little aggravating. Before I call the doc for an appt, does anyone have any idea what this could be? Thank you!

Hi,

I would say that maybe it is a bunionette but seeing that it is 3 in. down from your toe I don't know?
I wish you well,
Sue

Re: Lump on left side of my left foot

It could be a ganglion cyst or even a bone spur. Does it feel hard? I have a ganglion cyst on my foot on the top just in front of the ankle. It is ugly to look at but other then that, not a problem. Let me know what your doctor said.
