i am not computer or phone savvy. My heal is normal then below it is the second heal that is about an inch in depth and sticks out about an inch wider than the heal above.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago
Is there an underlying bone deformity or is it only skin enlargement?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the inch wider is on both sides and back
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago
If there is no underlying bone deformity then usually a plastic surgeon can remove the excess tissue and create a normal heel.

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.
