Don't mess with it.: If you are running painlessly with a dime size lump on your foot, I see no reason to have someone fool with it. The lump will do one of three things. Go away, stay the same or enlarge. Two out of three ain't bad. Leave it alone unless the nature of the lump changes radically. ...Read more

Achilles Nodule: I would recc you see your pcp for podiatrist asap... You have a painful nodule on your achilles tendon. It would bode well to be immobilized for a while and acquire an MRI of the area to determine the extent of the nodule and any underlying involvement. Sometimes, the nodular area will resolve.

I have a lump on my foot. No pain and move able! Like a cyst. What is this? And what's the cure??

I have a lump on my foot. No pain and move able! Like a cyst. What is this? And what's the cure??

Let it play out.: Without a location, it is difficult to give details. However, if it is on the top of the foot, you appraisal of "cyst" makes sense. Size and pain usually determine the action to be taken. Watch and wait is certainly acceptable, but if things about the cyst change, then have it evaluated and excised. Occasionally, these "cysts" will spontaneously rupture only to later recur. ...Read more
