I've been have extreme swelling in my left foot and none in my right. I was massaging my foot because it swells so much that it hurts and feels tight.. I found a lump/knot in the arch of it.

Anyone heard of this?? I'm going to see about getting it looked at this week maybe it's causing some of the swelling.

Usually if there is a knot (beneath the skin I am assuming), it could be a couple of things:
1) A muscle or tendon that is damaged (it will really hurt to touch)
2) A cyst--this should feel "squishy"
3) If hard, it could be a spur although this is more common on the heel.
Definitely get it checked out because it could just take some simple treatment to fix it!

My guess is that it may be plantar fasciitis--does it hurt more in the am when you first step on it? Do you spend a lot of time on your feet and in unsupportive shoes?? Also, take a plastic bottle and put some water in and freeze, then rub your foot on it--an ice massage works wonders!

A cyst can feel slightly hard as well, when it is being pressed against bone or other solid tissue can't it?
