Hard bump on bottom side of foot

I have a protruding bump (hard like a possible bone) right at the bottom side of outside of foot. It causes pain to walk on it. Any idea what this could be?

    Hello and thank you for your question. I’d really need to see a picture of your foot to have an idea of where you are referencing and if this is a normal anatomical finding or a injury. It sounds like you may be describing what’s called your styloid process or the base of 5th metatarsal. Occasionally you can get a bursitis or tendonitis in this area. If you have not iced or taking anti-inflammatories I would start with this and if your pain persists it may be worth seeing a Podiatrist – or if you can provide me with more information I can better advise you. Thank you –
