A bunion is an unnatural, bony hump that forms at the base of the big toe where it attaches to the foot. Often, the big toe deviates toward the other toes. When this occurs, the base of the big toe pushes outward on the first metatarsal bone – which is the bone directly behind the big toe – forming a bunion. If this happens on the little toe and fifth metatarsal, it’s called a bunionette.
