A noticeable bump on the top of your joint of your big toe, can be caused by several conditions. Most commonly it is a result of arthritis. Arthritis can affect the joints in your foot resulting in cartilage damage, decreased range of motion, as well as a painful bone spur at the top of the joint.
A podiatrist can take x-rays of your foot to see the cause of the bump, and if it is due to arthritis the extent of the damage can be determined.
