its on the bottom of my big toe but more upward under where the toenail would be. Its not a callous and not a blister. It just feels hard when I push on it. could it be some kind of benign tumor/ or even cancerous? I'm not sure, but its not going away at all and its kinda bugging me. I only noticed it the other night at dance practice cause it hurt to do my turns on that toe.

I think you need to see a podiatrist. It does not sound like a Morton's neuroma, which is more on the bottom of the foot between the toes, not under them.

Could it be a ganglion cyst? They're full of jelly but feel hard when you press on them--I have one on my left index finger and they can show up on any joint I think. I even heard of a man who had one on his face. They don't usually hurt, but I can see how one would if you put your weight on it like when you're dancing. That's a more likely scenario than that you might have a tumor.

ok, now I'm finding these red inflamed bumps on the sides of 2 more toes...should I go see a doctor about it? I'm not sure how to remedy it myself. They almost feel like splinters but there's nothing in it that I can see.

Of course you should go to a doctor, get a real diagnosis. Based on your last post it sounds kinda like plantar warts to me, but there are lots of things it might be.
