Hard nodule under my big toe

I have a hard nodule under my big toe. It is painless unless you try to manipulate it too much. I have an appt in 2 weeks, but it’s so long to wait. The skin is smoothe, so it’s not a blister. It’s too hard to be fluid I think. There’s no redness or swelling. The circulation is good but today the toe started to tingle off an on- maybe it’s rubbing on a nerve? I’m worried that I may need surgery to remove it. And I’m worried it will get worse and compromise circulation. What could it be? I’m hoping it’s something more along the lines of a cyst and less along the lines of a cancerous mass.

    Hello and thank you for the question. Without seeing your foot or seeing a picture I cannot accurately advise you. I would see the Podiatrist who can better evaluate you. It is quite possible it is a type of corn and just thick skin versus anything more involved. If you can provide a picture I’d be able to better advise you. Thank you.
