Often this deformity is progressive and worsens with time, however it can plague adolescents and adults alike. Not only is a bunion a deformity, but it’s also an arthritic condition.

The most common symptoms of a bunion are pain on the bony prominence, achy pain in the joint, difficulty wearing shoes.
