Cyst like on top my left foot and diagnosed of protruding bone called Ganglion exostosis. foot doctor said I need a surgery. is this true?

We all need somthing: Sounds like you have an exostosis, which is nothing more than an outgrowth of bone, and a ganglion cyst. If the condition is causing pain, numbness or a problem with the functioning of your foot, then surgery is probably called for. If, however, you have a lump and no symptoms associated with it, then, you have the opportunity of holding off on the surgery for what I call a "wait see". ...Read more

Will i need to get ingrown toenail surgery if my toe hurts when i put pressure on it but there is no redness/pressure/pus?

Look at the toe bone: There are other reasons for a toe to hurt other than an ingrown toenail, especially when there are no clinical signs of it being ingrown. An exostosis or bone spur is sometimes present on the distal phalanx. Known as a subungual exostosis, It can cause toe pain when pressure is applied to the toe.
