Another reason to see a doctor for you bunions is when the movement and flexibility on the big toe is already limited. Additionally, when the bump on the big toe is getting bigger and causes you difficulty to find good fitting shoes, it is definitely time to have it checked by the doctor.
Your doctor will ask you series of questions, and you have to be prepared for it. You have to be certain with your answers because they will have to design the treatment plan on your condition.
