bump on top of foot and toe separation

Right foot
On my right foot I experience some discomfort(kind of burning) on the bottom of my foot and to my 3rd toe. I have noticed a pea sized hard lump on my bone on top of my foot for about 6 months or so. Recently my 3rd toe has separated from my 2nd toe. Could you give me some insight on what the problem might be?

Hard to say from the photo and without examining you.  The "Lump" may be a bursitis or a benign cyst.  Spreading of the toes can be mechanical in nature.  Suggest you get evaluated by a podiatrist for a comprehensive exam.

All the best,
