Knot on both the ankle bones, no pain. Do karate regularly, have long hours on the feet. Could that be a cause?

can boils be formed on the ankle bone? because i have a smal knot, that is located on my ankle bone, but if you look at both ankles they both have the same knot. it is not painful but it i touch it , i can feel a slight pain, which is not really serious. i am just concern because i do take karate and i use my feet often.

This can be a callosity. This is knot which is formed due to pressure over a bone. It is not very serious condition and most common cause is wrong foot wear. some time sitting in wrong position for long time can also cause such knot. I would recommend you hot water fomentation. Also do not be scared as these knots are not dangerous.
