Ganglionic Cysts


Ganglionic Cysts are fluid filled bumps which can develop adjacent to joints and tendons. These non-cancerous masses are typically round or spherical in shape and are commonly found in the foot and ankle.

Symptoms (can vary)

  • Pain with direct pressure.
  • Can cause numbness / tingling adjacent to the cyst.
  • Round mass with a ‘fluid filled’ feel.


  • There are a variety of both clinical and surgical treatment options. Not all ganglions need to be treated surgically.
  • The primary goal of surgery to resolve a symptomatic ganglion is to excise the cyst in its entirety and identify the source.
  • The best treatment for one person is not necessarily the best for another. There are many variables we will consider when selecting the right management for you.




Together we can explore your treatment options.

Ganglions will generally require medical/surgical intervention.
