    Hello and thank you for your question. Without examining you it is hard for me to say exactly what it is however it sounds like you are describing a ganglion cyst.

    If you have not had your orthopedist or podiatrist evaluate it then I would start with that first. Ganglion cysts can easily be drained in the office with many not returning at all or slowly returning.

    I hope this helps!
