Soft tissue masses and tumors in the foot and ankle, while often benign, can cause concern and discomfort. These growths, ranging from cysts and fibromas to more serious neoplasms, can affect foot function and mobility.


Causes and Types
These masses can arise from various tissues in the foot, including muscle, fat, or nerve tissue. Types range from ganglion cysts and plantar fibromas to more rare and potentially serious tumors. The cause of these masses can be multifactorial, often involving genetic, traumatic, or unknown origins.
