5 Problems With Feet That Men Shouldn't Walk Away From
Date:1/13/2008

Ankle sprains and ingrown toenails need a doctor's attention, experts say

SUNDAY, Jan. 13 (HealthDay News) -- Many men don't bother to see a doctor when they have foot troubles, but there are five foot problems they should never ignore, says the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons:

  • Heel pain. This is often caused by tissue inflammation but can also result from a broken bone, a tight Achilles tendon, a pinched nerve, or other problem.
  • Ankle sprains. They always require prompt medical attention. Skipping medical care increases the likelihood of repeated ankle sprains and the development of chronic ankle instability.
  • Big toe stiffness and pain. This usually develops over time, as cartilage in the big toe joint wears down and eventually leads to arthritis. The sooner it's diagnosed, the easier it is to treat.
  • Achilles tendonitis. This causes pain and tenderness at the back of the foot or heel. This is usually the result of a sudden increase in physical activity. The risk of an Achilles tendon rupture can be reduced by treating the symptoms of Achilles tendonitis.
  • Ingrown toenails. These can pierce the skin, allowing bacteria to enter the body. Men shouldn't try to perform dangerous "bathroom surgery" in such cases. A doctor can perform a quick procedure that will stop the pain and permanently cure an ingrown toenail.
