lumpy
Apr 17, 2000

dear dr. feinberg,

i have recently noticed a hard lump an inch in diameter, in the the muscle of the arch in my foot. could this be cancerous? are there links between aids and tumors?

thanks

Response from Dr. Feinberg

There are links between AIDS and certain kinds of tumors, but it's not clear to me that your hard lump is a tumor. It may well be a plantar (sole of the foot) wart. You should see a competent foot doctor (podiatrist) and find out what the problem is for sure.
