I sprained my ankle playing softball. The pain didn't start until three hours later, very minimal swelling. But the pain was so severe I ended up in the emergency room. With ice the pain and swelling are gone only 2 days later. I have complete range of motion, but a suspcious palpable lump and bruise on the bottom of my foot, near the instep.

What is this lump all about? No pain even to touch.

  • CHARMEDGIRL, PLEASE GO AND SEE A SPECIALIST.It possible they may have missed a fracture resulting in a pus pocket which could lead to a serious bone infection.
