Re: Could it be a bunion?

: It might be a Tailor's bunion. This is like a mini bunion. You should see a podiatrist for further evaluation and treatment.


I have two such bone growths - one on my instep and one on the outside of my left foot. Have been treated for plantar Fasciatis and misaligned left ankle and wear orthotics now. Have been running 20 miles a week for 22 years. Am 63 and otherwide healthy. Anything else I can do short of surgery?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
