I have developed a hard lump on the anterior/mid-line

Customer Question

I have developed a hard lump on the anterior/mid-line portion of my left foot. It seemed to occur after golfing where I was excessively following thru with my weight onto the foot. It has been a month and it is still swollen and sensitive to the touch?

This is Dr. David

this lump sounds like a synovial cyst or a ganglion cyst

you need an MRI scan of your foot to see what is going on with the lump

if it is a simple cyst, an orthopedic doctor can drain it with a needle and remove the pressure of the cyst.

which could resolve the problem quickly
