I have a "bump"on my second toe that's the size of a pea. It is on the joint and although it is not painful it looks quite ugly. I have been to a podiatrist but I found her to be quite unhelpful. She was unable to tell me what it was and if it would ever go away. She said that it was not a corn or a callus.I have stopped using shoes that would cause any form of friction on this toe. What can I do? Is there a possibility that it will go away and if so how long will it take?
Hi VJ, Your picture is a little dark for me to get a good visualization, but why not find another doctor and have the growth removed? Because of its location it looks to be the result of excessive friction or pressure but I could be wrong. Having it removed and biopsied will definately tell you what it is. Marc Mitnick DPM
