Over half the women in America have bunions, a common condition often blamed on wearing tight, narrow shoes, or high heels.
With a bunion, the base of your big toe (metatarsophalangeal joint) gets larger and sticks out. The skin over it may become red and tender. Wearing any type of shoe may cause pain.
Bunion symptoms include having a bulging bump on the outside of the base of your big toe, swelling, redness or soreness around your big toe joint, thickening of the skin at the base of your big toe. Bunions can also cause persistent or intermittent pain and restricted movement of your big toe.
Bunions are treatable without surgery. However, if your bunion has advanced to the point where you have trouble walking, or experience pain in spite of specialized shoes, you may need surgery. Bunion surgery realigns bone, ligaments, tendons and nerves so your big toe can be brought back to its correct position.
