I had bunion surgery about 5 years ago. In the last few days, I developed a spongy mass onto of bunion, which is very painful and feels like there is fluid inside. Any thoughts or recommendations?
Hello and thank you for your question. Without examining you it is very difficult for me to accurately assist you with your foot issue. Dermatologic issues such as soft tissue masses, dermatitis etc are best assessed in person. If you still live near the Podiatrist who did your surgery I would recommend seeing him/her, as they are familiar with you. In the mean time, try to monitor the size of the mass and if it is painful, freely movable or is hard. My apologies that I am unable to help you more. Good luck!
