I have a lump that has grown between my 3rd and 4th toes on

Customer Question

I have a lump that has grown between my 3rd and 4th toes on my left foot. If you press on it it is sore. Depending on how you walk it is sore as well. It is not discolored and is the same color as my skin. Could it be a wart or a tumor? It is about a 1/4" in diameter and about 1/8" high.

Can it be something you can deal with unless the pain gets too bad or is surgery an option?

a ganglion cyst arises from the muscle or tendon sheath.
