Bunions are a foot problem that can affect men and women of all ages. This condition, which develops as excessive bone growth on the big toe, can make walking an uncomfortable endeavor. The reasons why bunions form vary. Lifestyle choices can influence the development of bunions. For instance, women who wear high heels typically suffer from this condition more often than individuals who avoid this type of footwear. Foot doctors have also noted a hereditary link, as individuals with bunions tend to have siblings or parents with the same problem. This commonality may stem from genetic factors that cause the bones of the foot to be vulnerable to the condition.
