User :   Hello, I'm a 21yr old girl.
I recently developed a lump on the top of my left foot. it's about 2 in away (diagonally toward the middle of the top of my foot.) from my ankle. (I notice that it's near nerves.) and when i move my foot it moves with it. It's not hard or soft, and there is no discoloration. When i try to do physical activities, it gets a little bigger, and when i rest it gets smaller(no physical activity for the day) and it has a dull type of pain, but can sometimes hinder my walking when I've tried to do physical activity, and the pain will become greater. Ice hurts it more, and heat does nothing, or so it seems. What is it? and should i be worried?
Thank you ^^
