hi you have a dime sized bump on the side of your great toes both sides which do not hurt. In my opinion these are called Bunions- Callosities formed on the sides of big toes usually due to deformity at the big toe called Hallux Valgus. Sometimes they can also occur irrespective of toe deformity.I suggest you get an X ray both feet APView and post it .The treatment is generally operation which is done along with corrective surgery for deformity.
