What are the small particles that are moveablend located between the bones of the instep of the feet?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes. I went to a Podiatrist and he did not know what they were and what caused them.

I can . I can move them up the instep to the bone that is raised push the particle l and it is destroyed. However I get many and it takes a long time to get rid of them all.

These may be plantar fibromas. They are the most common reason for a lump or lumps to develop on the arch of the foot. They are often small (less than 1cm), but can grow larger. They may occur as a single lesion or they may present as multiple lesions, typically along the medial border of the plantar fascia.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Plantar fibromas are benign and are composed of dense, fibrous tissue. Rapid-growing and multi-planar fibromas are considered plantar fibromatosis. Many patients with plantar fibromatosis do not have any symptoms and when they do, it is often only a vague discomfort like “walking on lumps”. These masses can be treated non-surgically with a custom or soft accommodating prefabricated orthotic. However, if they grow larger or are a persistent source of discomfort, they can be removed surgically.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
