Hello, my name is Gregory. When I was a young lad, I had to enter the health care world in an unexpected way. I developed a serious disease out of the blue that took doctors by surprise. I went through so many different testing procedures before my doctors could diagnose the rare disease. Everyone around me reeled as they tried to understand the purpose and process of the diagnostic tests. I hope to help others understand these important tests better through this website. Please come by often to learn all you need to know about medical diagnostics and working closely with health care professionals.

Sometimes, a bony bump forms at the base of your big toe. This bump is known as a bunion. It forms when some bones on your foot move out of place, pulling the big toe towards the other toes while the joint sticks out. If you look at the skin on the bunion, it looks sore and red, making it even harder to wear tight shoes. In such a case, you need bunion surgery.
