welcome to health care magic

Ganglion cyst is a collection of thin,mucinous fliud arises from joint capsule or tendon...most commonly it arises in the wrist,hand,foot,

And as such it don't cause any problems except for its pressure effect on underlying tissues like pain during walking ..

Consult general surgeon or orthopedician for surgical correction..aspiration with needle helps in relieving the symptoms but it will recur in due course of time..surgical excision is the only treatment of choice..

It is done under local anesthesia,,and its just a 10 min procedure..

hope you get satisfied with my suggestion

Have a speed recovery

Thank you
