The common assumption about bunions and severe bunions is that they are bone growths. However, the truth is that bunions are the development of a bulge caused by the displacement of the big toe joint underneath the skin.
Severe bunions can be as unsightly as they are painful. Redness and swelling can also accompany bunions. Shoes that crowd the toes can make pain worse as they put more pressure on the bunion.
Bunions come in many sizes and are often caused by genetics or poorly fitting shoes. The procedure to treat bunions depends on the severity of the bunion.
