If you notice a large lump on your foot, it’s possible that this lump is a ganglion cyst.

The cyst itself doesn’t actually cause many complications, but it can create issues with your appearance that you might want to get rid of. Understanding what a ganglion cyst is and the symptoms associated with the condition should put your mind at ease about the lump on your body.

What is a Ganglion Cyst?

A ganglion cyst is a lump that’s non-cancerous and will usually develop on your hands or feet along the joints and tendons in the area. The cysts can also develop on your ankles or wrists. These cysts come with an oval or round shape and are comprised of a fluid that has the consistency of jelly. Ganglion cysts can vary substantially in size from as small as a pea to as large as an inch in diameter. The pain that you can experience with a ganglion cyst depends on where the cyst is located. If it’s situated near a nerve, the pain level will likely be higher than usual.

The location of a ganglion cyst can also adversely affect the movement of your joints. Even though these cysts can dissipate on their own, there are a range of treatment options that are available to anyone suffering from a cyst. When you touch one of these cysts, it can feel either spongy or firm. While there will likely only be one cyst that develops in the area, it’s possible for several smaller ones to appear on your body in a close formation.
