FOLLOWING AN ULTRASOUND I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH AN UNUSUAL

Customer Question

ULTRASOUND RESULTS COMMENTS; UNUSUAL MASS THICKENING THE PLANTAR FASCIA AT THE MIDFOOT IS PROBABLY JUST A LARGE PLANTAR FIBROMA BUT GIVEN ITS SIZE AN ORTHOPAIDIC OPINION IS SUGGESTED FOR FURTHER ASSESSMENT. I HAVE A REFERRAL FROM MY GP TO AN ORTHOPEDICS SURGEON. MY GP HAS MENTIONED POSSIBLE BIOPSY DUE TO HISTORY OF NON-INVASIVE MELONOMAS. MEASUREMENTS MASS 33 X 6 X 12 mm. I AM INTERESTED TO KNOW WHAT YOUR TREATMENT PLAN WOULD BE. THE LUMP IS VERY PAINFUL AND IT IS DIFFICULT TO WEAR A SHOE. .

CAN I PLEASE GET A WRITTEN GENERAL OPINION. THE PHONE CHARGES FROM AUSTRALIA ARE TOO EXPENSIVE FOR ME. THANKYOU

I highly doubt this is cancer or anything like that. I agree with seeing ortho and I would get an MRI to better characterize it. If MRI isn't conclusive then biopsy
