Foot and Ankle – Bunions

A bunion occurs when the big toe bends inward toward the other toes. This causes a bony growth, and the collection of fluid to develop on the edge of the big toe. Bunions can be caused by abnormal bone development, or by wearing shoes that are too narrow or high.

  • A visible bony bump on the toe
