Queens Foot Tumor Removal

Get expert treatment from our podiatric tumor removal specialists


Tumors, cysts, and other masses are able to develop in nearly any part of your body, and your feet are no exception. Although the risk of cancer is almost always present, most common foot tumors are typically benign. They can, however, still be troublesome in other ways; depending on the size and location of the mass, it may hinder your ability to walk without pain or discomfort, restricting your mobility.

Ganglion cysts (non-cancerous masses that often form in tendons and joints) typically grow on the tops of your feet; they’re often painful to the touch and can affect the types of footwear you are able to use, but are generally benign. Giant cell tumors, another type of benign growth, also usually forms on top of the feet, but can also be found on the toes or soles in some cases.

Some growths may also present symptoms similar to other common podiatric conditions. Plantar fibromas, for example, form on the plantar fascia, a band of fibrous tissue that connects the toes to the heel bone; this mass can cause pain while walking, similar to the pain caused by plantar fasciitis.

Our Queens tumor removal specialists have the expertise to surgically remove any type of mass you may be suffering from. Not all tumors and growths require surgical removal if they are not significantly impacting your life. However, surgery may be right for you if a growth is causing repeated pain, discomfort, or showing signs of cancer. If a mass is cancerous, your doctor may recommend radiation or chemotherapy to fully remove any cancer cells remaining in the surgical site.

No matter what type of growth you’re suffering from, our specialists can help you find the right treatment approach for living as pain-free and mobile as possible.
