Re: Bump on outer edge of foot??

If this "bunion" is on the 5th metatarsal head then it is referred to as a tailor's bunion.

Many years ago ( before sewing machines were computerized), tailor's sewed with a foot pedal. They frequently rubbed a lesion on the outside part of the foot by the 5th metatarsal head- hence a tailor's bunion.

Shoes can aggravate a pre-existing problem. You should see a podiatrist for further evaluation.

Good luck.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
