Cysts and Warts

Updated 4/11/2019
Cysts of the Foot and Ankle

A cyst is a sac-like structure, typically filled with liquid,  commonly found on or underneath the skin, vary in size and can appear anywhere on the foot and ankle (and elsewhere on the body).

 

The causes of cysts can be infection, trauma, chronic inflammatory conditions and clogged oil glands. The most-common type of cysts we treat are Ganglion, Synovial and Plantar Fibroma.

 

The success of cyst treatment depends on an accurate diagnosis and proper procedure selection. We are experts at identifying these masses and offer the latest testing and most accurate diagnostic technology to ensure proper analysis and treatment.

  • Ganglion Cysts are benign, fluid-filled masses that attach to a tendon or tissue surrounding the joints. They can be painless or create a burning sensation.

  • A Plantar Fibroma cyst is a fibrous knot buried deep within the plantar fascia in the arch of the foot. These cysts usually don't go away without treatment.

  • A Synovial Cyst (Gideon’s Disease) is a small, fluid-filled sac over a tendon or joint on the top of the foot. These non-cancerous cysts may be painful, can change size or disappear, only to reappear later.

  • Sarcomas are rare, cancerous tumors that grow in muscles, fat, joints, nerves or blood vessels.

  • These rough, hardened warts grow in the outer layers of skin, usually appearing on the heels or balls of the feet.
