I found a hard bone-like lump on the top of my left foot a couple of months ago. It was painless at first, but as time passed, pain started occurring. I work in retail and I'm on my feet all the time and its just getting worse and worse. One time I came home and I could barely walk and the pain had reached up to my knee. My entire foot was swelled up, tingly, numb, and in horrible pain. Any idea what it could be?

Sounds like a bunion. They are often surgically removed. I have them. They run in my genes. I was in the Army and was disqualified because of it. (It probably saved my life from not going to war, but that's another story)I could not tolerate the darn boots. It caused shooting pain and swelling. Wear comfortable shoes and see a foot doctor.
