Your foot typically has 2 sesamoid bones. They lie just under the long bone, or metatarsal, around where the big toe attaches to the foot. They lie within a tendon, and move freely with the tendon, akin to your knee cap. Inflammation of the sesamoid is called sesamoiditis, and it presents with pain under the ball of the foot just under the big toe.
