The cyst itself is harmless, but the pressure it can exert on the skin or any surrounding nerve can cause pain, especially when the ground or a shoe rubs against it.

Effective treatment involves draining the cyst with a needle, and injecting a steroid compound into the cyst to help destroy the cyst's capabilities to regenerate.

It is always best to have any foot lumps or masses evaluated by a podiatrist or other physician to ensure that they are benign.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and Informative.

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Your condition is quite normal. If you tied the sneakers, really tight, then it is bound to hurt. As per the duration of the tightness, the external lymph nodes and cells are agitated deprived of proper blood circulation.

Lack of blood circulation and agitation makes that area partially dead and first it becomes numb. As soon as you untie and allow circulation, the area becomes tender and painful. Sometimes a large blister also forms.

But should be alright within a week. Just apply some olive oil externally.

Good luck.
