What does a cyst on the foot indicate?

Hi according to my Doctor I have a cist on the top side of my foot. He said get an MRI to see if it is damaging any nerves, if not just leave it alone. I need a second opinion, it does not hurt but it seems like it has gotten a little bigger maybe as a size of a walnut I am a little concerned but it does not hurt at all.

Thank you for trusting HCM

Dear cyst may be due to plantar ganglion or bony spur or lipoma.

Until examination it is difficult to say what it is. please take an x-ray/MRI and get treated accordingly.

Take care.
