When to Consult a Doctor About Bunions

Posted on in Bunions

A bunion is a deformity of the metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe. As a bunion develops, the first metatarsal bone of the foot turns outward and the big toe points inward. Eventually, the fluid-filled sac that surrounds the joint becomes inflamed. This causes the joint to become painful and stiff.
