Lump on Left Foot


I have a lump, about the size of a large marble, on the top of my left foot near the ankle.
I have been ignoring it for several months, but it is causing my foot to swell enormously.
Why I suspect it is the lump causing the swelling, is because my other foot isn’t swollen. I have taken fluid pills and they do not help, nor does elevating it.
I do not have problems with my heart or kidneys. I have been checked for these possibilities.


  1. WHile it would be convenient for me to suggest several possibilities of what your lump is, I suggest you get it evaluated in person. To see is to know, not to see is to guess.
