Bunions (cont.)

Symptoms and Signs of Bunions

Because bunions can be associated with local inflammation of the tissues around the joint and even adjacent bursitis, swelling, redness, pain, and tenderness are common symptoms in the area of a bunion. Sometimes adjacent nerve irritation can lead to numbness or tingling of the big toe. Deeper pain within the joint may be due to degeneration of the joint due to arthritis.

There is usually localized soft tissue and bony enlargement within the bunion. The affected toe is often displaced against, or over/under the adjacent toe, resulting in deformity.
