Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through the attachments (attachment removed to protect patient identity)
I understand that you are concerned about a lump in your right midfoot on the outer side.
The probable cause is a benign bony prominence.
However, differential diagnoses include a calcified ganglion, accessory ossicle, a subluxed peroneal tendon, ankle ligament sprain, and tarsal coalition.
You described the lump as a hard lump with a smooth surface. The pictures you sent suggest that it is around 2 cm long and 1cm wide.
Investigations that need to be done include anteroposterior and lateral and oblique radiographs of the right foot.
The fact that it has been there for a long time and that there is no pain is reassuring and goes against cancer. However, it is important to know if there have been any recent changes.
Prevention measures include wide comfortable shoes with good padding.
The attached files only contain clinical photographs.There are no radiographs to comment on. Kindly upload the reports.
You need to contact a doctor if the lump changes or becomes painful.
