What causes a ganglionic cyst at the big toe joint. Can it be from bending the toe down repeatedly?
Seems like Gouch.: Benign cysts is a very generic description for not knowing exactly what the soft tissue masses are. If you have gouty tophi in the ear, there is a good chance that the tophi are located elsewhere, and the toe is a logical location. To get the gout under control, you need to be aggressively managing you diet, using medication and possibly help from a support group. Ask you doctor for help. ...Read more

Cyst type growth appeared suddenly on top of toe below nail, something was dropped on toe about 5 days ago, will it just go away?
Watch the Toe.: The obvious conclusion is that the cyst type growth is a direct result of the injury. And, it probably is. Possibly some tissue fluid trapped beneath the skin's surface. There other possibilities but 5 days is not enough time for those to occur. Watch and see, if the cyst enlarges, have it examined. ...Read more
“I have an enlarged left ovary with a cyst. Could this be resting on a nerve and causing gout like symptons in my left toes?”
Should my dislocated big toe and 2 large bone cysts be treated soon? Went undiagnosed until recently. Made worse by accident april 2013
Ganglion cyst: The cause of ganglion cysts is not known. One theory suggests that trauma causes the tissue of the joint to break down forming small cysts, which then join into a larger, more obvious mass. The most likely theory involves a flaw in the joint capsule or tendon covering (sheath) that allows the joint tissue to bulge out. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
