Do you have ganglions on your feet and want to get rid of them? If so, Dr. Stuart Feldman offers treatment for ganglions in Henderson, NV that have proven results.
Ganglions are small cysts that are filled with fluid. They often appear as sacs on the hands and wrists, but they are sometimes found on the feet, ankles, knees, or shoulders. These small bumps are not cancerous, but you will notice that they appear suddenly. These ganglions can be very small or they could also grow bigger than a cherry. It might also get bigger if you increase your activities because it adds more fluid into the sac. However, they have the ability of shrinking and going away on their own.
Children do not typically get them, but that does not mean there is not a chance that they can. Adults between the ages of 15 and 40 are most likely to be affected by ganglions. There are many sources of this issue, including swelling or irritation of the tendon sheath or joint capsule, overuse of the joint, repetitive motions, injuries, and arthritis.
Treatment for ganglions include aspiration (removing fluid from the affecting joint) and steroid injections to reduce the size of the ganglion.
