Seek and Find.......: Simply make an appointment with either a foot, orthopedic, general or dermatology surgeon and let him/her evaluate the cyst. Cysts, many times can be removed right in the office, or in an out patient surgery setting. An x-ray might have to be taken to see if any underlying bone is involved.
