— A bunion is a bone-like bump that forms at the base of the big toe, says Mayo Clinic.

It may form when the big toe pushes against the next toe, forcing the joint of the big toe to stick out.

Mayo Clinic mentions treatment options for bunions:

Changing shoes.
Using padding, tape or a splint.
Applying ice.
Using shoe inserts.
Taking medication.

If non-surgical treatment doesn’t provide relief, surgery may be required.
