. On the instep of my left foot there was a lump like a boil but not festering. The edges are black and little, and if it’s hard to hold it, if it’s pressed it doesn’t hurt but if you just put on sandals or new shoes, it hurts because it doesn’t hurt. Is it suppose to be a wart or not? Is it dangerous? And how to get rid of it?

Hello, Dahlia Fatatu Ahwal, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Lumps on the backs of the feet can be caused by several possibilities:

1. Warts / verucca vulgaris

2. Callus / callus

3. Bunion

4. Ganglion cysts

5. Lipoma

6. Benign fibroma / lump formed from connective tissue

7. Etc.

To ascertain the type and cause, need a direct examination by a doctor. The doctor will ask you about symptoms that occur, for example since when they appear, changes in shape / size or not, whether itching / pain / numbness, bleeding / discharge, previous medical history and habits, etc. In addition, the doctor will see the shape, size, amount, distribution, whether it can be moved or not, etc. If necessary, a supporting examination such as biopsy (checking the sample of the lump tissue under a microscope) will determine the type and nature of the lump network. Treatment is in accordance with the cause, can only be given a certain ointment to the treatment of lump removal by surgery.

So, check with your doctor first if the lump is getting bigger, changing color, bleeding / pus, pain, or there are other symptoms such as fever and accidental weight loss.

To prevent severity, avoid touching / squeezing / scratching the lump because these things can cause injury that can lead to infection and other complications. Also avoid giving certain medicines / substances without a doctor's prescription. Use comfortable footwear, if possible, to minimize friction on bumps.

That's all, hopefully it's useful.

Regards.
