A common misconception is that a bunion is a growth. In reality, it is instead actually an issue with the joint of the big toe. Because of this, it can be very hard to predict how quickly a bunion will grow and how severe the problem can become if left untreated.
Some people may find that their bunion is rapidly progressing, while others may notice a very slow progression over the course of several years. Bunions can form very early on in life. Some teenagers may have painless bunions that don’t increase in severity or pain until their 50s.
Whether you have a moderate or severe bunion, it is important that you properly treat it in order to maintain or improve your quality of life. Contact us to schedule a consultation with bunion expert Dr. Neal Blitz.
