Ganglion cysts are “lumps” on your foot, that are fluid filled and can originate from joint capsules or tendon sheaths. They may appear on their own and can fluctuate in size, can get smaller or larger. They are non-cancerous masses, however they can be painful and sometimes they can cause tingling, burning if impinging on a nerve.
In our office, we can aspirate the cyst or perform corticosteroid injections to resolve the cyst. More than one procedure may have to be performed, as cysts can be recurrent. If they are recurrent often, surgical excision of ganglion cyst will need to be performed in the operating room.
Call Cutting Edge Foot and Ankle Clinic, 615-866-9639 if you have a painful cyst on your foot, we will take care of it for you!
