Soft tissue tumors are common in the foot. Often times these tumors cause pain due to compression of surrounding nerves. Here at our surgeons, remove these tumors on an out-patient basis. Once the tumor is exposed and removed, we send them for microscopic examination. This examination gives us the ability to identify, measure, and further treat the tumor. Some of the common foot tumors are ganglion cysts and fibromas.
Recovery for removal of tumors is approximately two to three weeks depending on size and location. The location of the tumor also determines whether or not you will be allowed to weight bear. For example, tumors on the bottom of the foot will call for non-weight bearing until the skin is healed completely. Special shoes and padding also are used to help facilitate healing.
