Ganglions

 
Avenel Podiatrist | Avenel Ganglions |  | Family Podiatry Center |

Typically located on the ankle or top of the foot, but also occasionally formed elsewhere on the foot, ganglions are small fluid-filled swellings of the joint or tendon. They usually grow slowly, but can cause severe irritation when the size becomes too large.

Ganglions are usually caused by repeated irritation that weakens joint or tendon lining. If you wear boots or other restrictive footwear, you may be more susceptible to this condition.

The symptoms of this condition range from tingling and numbness to pain. These sensations are caused when ganglions come into contact with and put excessive pressure on nerves within the foot.

If you are concerned that you may have ganglions, it is important to seek the opinion of a professional, as the appearance of a ganglion is similar to that of a tumor. Treatment methods range from fluid removal to surgery.

Contact our podiatry professionals today to discuss your symptoms, obtain a comprehensive diagnosis and find the treatment option that is right for you.
