Question: My 6 yr old son has an approximately 3cm round, flat, non-painful dot on the heel of his right foot. I plan on taking him to the doctor on Tuesday. Should I be more worried and take ohm sooner?

Brief Answer:
I dont think a reason for concern.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query .

I have gone through the history that you are telling , it seems like the child has developed a corn over feet since you say it is flat , painless plus the location is on the heels . But anything can be definitely said after physical examination . So in given scenario I think you can wait till tuesday as there is no apparent emergency.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
