In brief: Ganglion cyst

Most lumps around the ankle and foot are ganglion cysts.
These are painless masses that can vary in size and cause problems because of their size and what they may push on around the foot. Any painful mass and any mass that is rapidly enlarging in size should be evaluated by a doctor.
