Cysts are a bulging sac-like bump that fills with liquid and can be caused by infection, trauma, inflammation or clogged oil glands.
Types of cysts:
Ganglion Cysts are a benign growth attached to a tendon or tissue that surrounds the joint of the foot. They can make your feet burn and irritate your skin.
Mucoid Cysts are basically a ganglion cyst that grows on the fold of the toe. They are most common in older adults between the ages of 40 – 70.
Inclusion Cysts are lumps that form underneath the skin in the wake of a mild injury like a cut or a scratch and remain small.
Plantar fibroma cysts are hard knots that are found deep within the skin on the arch of the foot. They are non-cancerous, small cysts on the top of the foot or over a tendon. They start off soft but can become harder over time.
Cysts are easy to treat and more times than not can be removed with a simple injection.
