lump on 4th right metatarsal

I have had e-rays, bone scans and seen several specialist and no one knows what is wrong. I have a very painful lump on the 4th right metatarsal about the size of a large grape. When given Oxaprozin (600 mg) it will help reduce the size but never completely and it always comes right back. Any idea what this might be?

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
