What Are The Symptoms?
Bunions can be painful. Look for an angular, bony bump on the side of the foot at the base of the big toe.
Your entire body weight rests on your bunion with each step — so bunions hurt!
Bunions typically form slowly over the years and can begin as more annoying than painful. Perhaps you find, at first, that you are having trouble fitting your foot into shoes and have to size up to a wider size. Eventually though, most bunions turn painful and that pain can begin to interfere with normal, daily activities.
Typical symptoms of a bunion include:
- A bump on side or top of foot

Symptoms tend to worsen when toes are crowded or when standing for long periods of time.
Because of this, some occupations may aggravate the condition.
