screw removal

Two years ago I had a bunionectomy and three weeks ago I had the screw removed from the big toe. I now have a hard bump between pea & marble size where the screw used to be. Is this a common occurrence after removal? It does not appear to be swelling as the bump is rather defined. When I had the pin taken out on the other side of my foot (I had bunions on both sides) there was no problem. It was removed during the first year and was a very simple procedure with one stitch and no swelling. What usually happens after screw removals?

Thank You

Softens and remove corns in a most comfortable way. It is ideal to help relieve pain on a toe or finger affected by corns, blebs, blisters, hammertoes, calluses and digital traumas.
