Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

if you can't walk, that is serious.

black lump can be from a bruise or a broken blood vessel

how old are you?

can you upload a photo of this small black lump?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Yeah I got photos
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Sorry I sent so many of the same photo
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

that is a very very blurry photo.

can you take one more clear?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
That's the best I can get it
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

you don't need to be closer with the photo. it is more blurry.

that looks like a mole or nevus

why can't you walk on it.

is it tender?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I can't walk on it because it's really painful at my whole foot is sore
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

it looks like a benign mole.

most likely it is not causing the soreness on the whole foot

have you tried to ice and stretch your foot? you could have a plantar fasciitis cousing the pain on the whole foot.

Do you think it could be a spider bite
Expert:  Dr. David replied 9 months ago.

it doesn't look like a spider bite.
