a lump on the top of my 6 year old boys feet

    I noticed a raised lump on the top of each of my son's feet a few weeks ago and just thought it was me being a bit over protective. Last week he developed a sore on each foot where the bumps have rubbed against his shoe. He then went to school after his holiday and was therefore wearing different shoes which have been fine since we got them 4 weeks ago, and came home complaining of the pain in his feet and the bumps have rubbed him again and he now can't wear any type of shoe that covers over the top of his feet. Does this sound like something I should take him to the Doc about or should I just try getting some different shoes fitted? The lumps feel quite pronounced on both of his feet?

    Thanks, would appreciate any advice.

    There are all kinds of reasons why someone would have lumps and bumps on the foot, but without any description of its appearance, precise location and more importantly, the ability to physically examine the foot, there is no way to offer anything approaching a meaningful answer other than to list each and every possibility. Certainly this is something for which you should take him to a doctor.

    My son is 4 years old and seems to have a very similar problem. I have been told that it is nothing to be concerned about. I do still worry, how did you go? Where did you go to find shoes, I am finding it very difficult. He starts school next year and I would like him to get used to wearing them beforehand.
