The five metatarsal bones are the long thin bones of the midfoot. A metatarsal fracture occurs when one of these long bones is broken. This might be due to sudden injury: typically an object dropped on the foot. The  tarsal  bones  break  easily  and  such  an injury  can  take  months  or  years to  heal. In acute fractures you may hear a sound at the time of the break, and experience pain, swelling, and difficulty putting weight on the foot.
