    do I have a ganglion cyst?

    I've got a small lump on my big toe that I noticed a few months ago. It hasn't gotten any bigger/smaller since I noticed it; I just sort of noticed it one day. It's rock hard when I squeeze it, and doesn't really have any feeling. The range of motion of the toe joint isn't really affected except that I can feel a bit of numbness when I flex my toes as much as possible. Other than that & very minor (incidental) skin irritation from it rubbing in my shoe, there's nothing to indicate that there is anything wrong (no pain, etc). I looked up ganglion cyst on Yahoo! & it sounds like that's what it might be, but I thought they only came up on certain parts of the hands. Does this sound like a gangion cyst or what?

    My son had a quarter sized lump on his arm appear on day. Like you he had no pain and it was a hard lump. We took him to the doctor and they said it was a ganglion cyst. It stayed for a few years and its gone now.
    Just as quickly as it appeared it then just disappeared. Baylee
