Home Life : Venous Aneurysm
That's right guys, time to tell you about another lump I have!

I have had a lump on my foot for many years now, I never though much of it, except to prod it now and then and say 'eww'. For years, my girlfriend has told me to stop prodding it and that's it's only a vein. Anyway, I asked my doctor about it, well, I say 'my doctor' but I don't care much if I see the same one each time, so I just ask to see whoever can fit me in first. Anyway, whichever doctor it was at the time, though it was some sort of cyst and offered to syringe it there and then, so I said, yeah, why not... Only to discover that he was wrong, "Oh, it's just a big vein" he said.

Anyway, that was a while ago, and it's started bugging me, not causing any actual pain, but I can feel it pressing on my shoe, I can feel the skin tighten around it when I walk barefoot, and well, it looks weird. Anyway, I asked the doc if it can be removed, he asked to see it so I showed him, "I've never seen one of those before!" - You know you're going to have an interesting time when a doctor says that to you He did however know exactly what it was and passed a message on to a local hospital so I can get it removed.

After googling the thing, it seems its quite rare to get one of these on your foot...

Venous aneurysms are rarely mentioned in the literature. Regarding those in the foot region, only 4 cases have been published so far. We report on the clinical and diagnostic features of 2 young women showing venous aneurysms in the first part of the long saphenous vein on the right back of the foot. In both cases, sclerotherapy was successfully performed.

Anyhow, here is a photo of it from a couple of angles, once it is removed, I'll post a picture of the scar too.

Six days after the operation, healing nicely

I went to the doctor yesterday for a lump on my foot, in the 10 minutes i was in there he said strange 8 times, and told me he'd never seen it before and it was weird.
he thinks it is an aneurysm and i have to go get an ultrasound on it-but have to wait a week. my lump is absolutely killing me though! did yours hurt at all? how did you stop it from hurting?

no pain with mine, not at all. I've been wearing an elastic support bandage on my foot for a while now though, to keep it squished. I really must get back and find out what's going on. I'm a bit lazy you see.

I've had a small anuerysm (size of a small pea) at the junction of the third toe for many years that just tripled in size overnight (literally). It has been stable at that size for 2 days now or I would have done something about it. I never worried about it before, but am a bit concerned now.
Your post is one of the few places I could find any information or experience with this issue. What was your outcome? What were the medical concerns? How big of a deal is it?

Parts of your body suddenly getting bigger is usually a bad sign (well unless it's that particular bit of your body).

@TS269: It could be nothing, but you should seriously go see a doctor.

I'm getting it removed (cut out) some time after my summer holiday. The procedure seems straight forward, they cut out the damaged bit of vein and tie up the two loose ends, the blood then finds a different route to wherever it's going to. They do it all the time with leg veins.

It's hard for me to tell if the size has changed any because I look at it all the time, but Helen (my GF) assures me that it hasn't changed.

|edit| How on earth can you tell I have big feet? There is no point of reference there, they might just be thin...

Sorted. Operation yesterday, was under for a couple of hours, currently though, as a side effect of being intubated, my throat hurts more than my foot! Helen suggested that the pain was just displaced and my brain assumes that my throat is more important than my foot. Either way, my foot is still covered in pink dye, which looks like it's been scalded.

For all three operations I've had in my life, I had a sore throat everytime. It must be due to the hospital having a dry environment.

Glad you got it sorted Bud.

I would have guessed something to do with them shoving a plastic tube down your throat

Some time in the next day or two, I'll discover how well I handle looking at wounds when changing the dressing

I'm no doctor, but the slight swelling has gone, the bruising is almost gone, it looks to be healing very well after only a few days.

Should have perhaps used macro instead of auto-focus, but meh, too late now. Looks a whole lot better than it did just a few days ago.

Ooooh, that's a much bigger scar then I expected, given how it wasn't too long on the original pics.

If it gets infected, and your foot ends up being amputated, can I have it?

My foot? nope.

.. Why would it get infected? Plus, a round of antibiotics would probably do the trick anyway.

If anyone's getting it, it'll be me.
It'll look odd, and yet somewhat appropriate, on the Socoder shrine, next to Afr0's Machete.

Would have had another photo update, but my phone camera is really struggling to get a good quality photo. Perhaps its the poor light, maybe it's because I've tried out about a million firmwares on my phone and the latest one can't work the camera very well. either way, it's not much more than a red line now it still feels a little swollen underneath, but it's not uncomfortable.
