Re: Painless lump on inner ball of left foot

As I have not examined your foot I can not state accurately what this is.

A common diagnosis is a plantar fibroma which arises from the plantar fascia. We aren't sure what causes them. Sometimes they are hereditary.
Most of the time if they are painless we let them be. Surgery is indicated only as a last resort for constant pain and failure of conservative options.

Of course there are other possibilites. You doctor may want to ultrasound or MRI the area.

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.
