A ganglion cyst or “lump” is a common benign tumor seen in both the hands and the feet. This lesion will typically arise in communication with either a joint or tendon sheath (the anatomic structure that surrounds a tendon). The exact reason why they develop is not fully understood but it could be related to a traumatic event.
A hammertoe is a common condition whereby there is a contracture of one or more of the smaller toes. This is frequently treated by Dr. Lonny Nodelman in Alexandria, Virginia.
