Bumps on feet can signal serious or non-serious conditions, so it's best to have all bumps properly examined by a foot and ankle surgeon. "The most common type of foot bump, ganglionic cysts, are soft, harmless, fluid-filled sacs found on the tendons and joints of the foot. Ganglionic cysts can be caused by a leaking of jelly-like fluid from the "capsule" surrounding the joint or tendon and may be on the top of the foot, near the ankle joint, or even on the side of the foot" says Michael Coyer, DPM.

"Plantar fibromas are another type of harmless bump found on the foot. Plantar fibromas are fibrous, hard bumps found within the ligament of the foot and are common in the arch area on the bottom of the foot. Non-surgical treatments, such as steroid injections or orthotic devices, may relieve symptoms. Surgical removal is an option for people who still have pain after trying non-surgical approaches," says Dr. Coyer.
