Hi and thanks for query,
I would suggest you must visit podiatrist it can be shaved off or can freeze. Cost depends on the hospital and doctor you select.
Let me know if you have further questions.

If it is a corn it has to be enucleated, ie 'dug out' with a scalpel blade to remove the hard central core. This must be done by a Podiatrist. 'Shaving off' the hard skin may alleviate it temporarily but will not remove the main problem which is under the surface of the skin. We don't freeze corns; this is a treatment used to get rid of verrucas, which are completely different from corns.
Don't attempt to remove the corn yourself with a corn plaster as this tends to damage the surrounding skin, making it very sore, and often does nothing to remove the corn itself.
However, as you're describing the problem as a 'pink bump', this may not be a corn at all but a cyst or a ganglion or a benign growth. A Podiatrist would need to have a look at it to properly diagnose the problem and suggest the appropriate treatment. I don't know what this would cost in the US but I shouldn't think it would be more than about $30 - 40.
I'd be happy to have a look if you'd like to send some photos.
All the best.
