I have this pesky ganglion cyst in my foot, it hasn't grown up and out like most do it has grown down between the bones of my foot. I have the option of a steroid injection that will hopefully reduce it and make it go away or have surgery to have it removed. Specialist said the decision is mine
Anyone had one and used either option and had success?
I've been ignoring it for a while now but it's just getting worse not magically going away like I hoped it would.

If I had to go under general to have it removed then I'd go for steroid injections. Sounds like a less risky option. But if it can be done under local or something then the removal sounds more permanent.

I have a ganglion cyst on my wrist that has grown up and around my tendon.
It is quite painful and can't be syringed out...
I have had one steroid (cortisone) injection and it did relieve the pain for a while. And make it feel better.
My doc advised me to go with the steroid first(through somewhere that bulk bills) as this can often work and will work out cheaper than surgery.
If it doesn't work you haven't lost anything and can still have surgery down the track!

I would also try steroids before the surgery. It is funny how things don't magically heal themselves THey do hurt though. Make sure they mix it with local. I ahd them for a different reason but after the initial injection it was fab as the local numbed it. Until it wore off, wasn't too bad just the usual soreness
