    Corns are due to circumscribed pressure and force, that is increased force in a precise location. Thus, if those forces continue , the corn reoccures. If its on the sole of the foot, it is a good chance it will reoccur ,as its dealing with ground reaction forces when you weightbear. But, just wait and see how you go, very rarely they don't come back. if it comes back very quickly on a regular basis, say every 6 weeks, permanent good quality customised  padding can deflect and reduce those forces and either slow or prevent its re ocurrence. Also, check your footwear, inappropriate footwear can aggravate the forces. See you local podiatrist if it re occurs
