PODIATRIST DISCUSSES GANGLIONIC CYSTS

According to Douglas Tumen, DPM of Hudson Valley Foot Associates," a ganglionic cyst is a soft tissue fluid-filled cyst. Picture a balloon. You fill it with water and it starts getting bigger. The tendon right over the big toe joint is a common place to get these ganglions. These are filled with a viscous gelatinous fluid.

"It's usually not painful unless it's pressing on a structure. Usually they are freely movable. After local anesthesia, the ganglion can be punctured and drained. They usually resolve, but one in five will return,” says Dr. Tumen
