A bunion (hallux valgus) is an enlargement of bone or tissue around
the joint at the base of the big toe (metatarsophalangeal joint). This results
in a bump on the outside edge of this toe. The skin may be red or irritated,
and there may be swelling at the base of the big toe. The big toe may point
toward the other toes.
