Re: xray

In answer to your question- yes x-rays depending on the way they are shot can have artifacts.

Some of the possibilites you may be seeing are a bone cyst (fairly common and often not a problem)or an area of radiolucency that is commonly noted in the calcaneus.

A comparison view of the other foot might be helpful.

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.
