Though a bunion may seem like a relatively minor issue, the reality is that bunions can cause severe pain and discomfort. In some cases, bunion pain may disrupt a person’s lifestyle, affect their performance at work, or even prove debilitating. What happens if you leave a bunion untreated? Though the answer to that question varies from person to person, generally speaking bunions only tend to get worse with time. And, unfortunately, untreated bunions may even contribute to a number of other painful conditions.
