Hello there. 

I can understand your concern.  You can either apply a corn cap over that for a month. If it doesn't subside, it should definitely be removed surgically.
Kindly consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.

Hello....... Do not try to cut the corn or callus yourself. You could make it more painful and it might become infected. Consult surgeon they will remove it scalpel The citrus acid in lemon works to soften the hardened skin that makes up the corn, so it eventually falls out. Garlic is a natural antioxidant and hence very helpful in treating corns. Also, its antibacterial and antifungal properties will prevent infection.
