A bunion typically appears as a bony bump on the inside edge of the foot, where the innermost long bone of the foot (called the first metatarsal) meets the base of the big toe.
Wearing tight, narrow shoes might cause bunions or make them worse. Bunions can also develop as a result of the shape of your foot, a foot deformity or a medical condition, such as arthritis.Smaller bunions (bunionettes) can develop on the joint of your little toe.
