    do cysts in feet go away on their own?

    I had a cyst removed from the ball of my foot in morton's neuroma area. It has come back and also another cyst has presented on my heel. Is surgery the only answer? Do cysts ever go away by themselves?

    What kind of cyst? If a ganglion, you should be able to get it to go away by taping with athletic tape. It worked for me on one that was on the top of my foot, just behind the toes.

    Not ganglion but other than that, I don't know what kind. On my heel, it's a hard mass under the skin. The doctor tossed out a couple of unfamiliar, medical-sounding terms as to two possible kinds but said he couldn't know until it was removed and biopsyed.
