A myxoid cyst, or digital mucous cyst, is actually not a true cyst, so it’s also called a pseudocyst. They are growths that most often occur on the top (dorsal) part of the finger or toe, just behind the base of the nail. They are kind of translucent/see-through, round, and slightly compressible. They are due to a connection to the joint space, where one bone meets another, the part of your finger or toe that allows you to bend the digit. The fluid inside this cyst is gel-like and sticky, because this is the lubrication that “oils” our joints. This fluid somehow has made its way closer to the surface of the skin, creating this bump. These are benign growth, and may spontaneously disappear, but recurrence is common, mainly because in order to prevent these, you may likely need to seal off this connection with the joint space.

This patient came from a distance to see me and really wanted to try to get rid of the bump, although it was not painful or actively growing in size. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t come back!

Thank you so much for watching!!

    Just curious if this patient has had any recurrence of this particular cyst?

    I found a cure for my husband who had 2 of these. The solution is to use apple cider vinegar. It took a month to fix the one less severe by rubbing apple cider vinegar day and night. He got a more severe one and he soaked the toe with apple cider vinegar in cotton ball during the day for about 10 hours. It took him a month to do this everyday to fix the 2nd one.  This is no surgery remedy. It worked and we wanted to share this amazing remedy with everyone. I also learnt this from youtube. Good luck.

    I am an auto mechanic. I self treated a cyst on my middle finger with a q-tip that was placed in a stream of automotive refrigerant R134A and then applied it to cyst for about two minutes. The cyst was applying pressure to the cuticle and was deforming my fingernail with a deep trough inline with the cyst. About 6 months later the cyst has not returned and fingernail is almost grown out with no trough. Cryotherapy seems to be effective.

    Forgive my ignorance, but I was under the impression that you could not use epi in extremities d/t the risk of loss of blood flow. Would you be willing to explain why you chose a numbing agent with epi vs w/o epi. It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

    How do I explain to my girlfriend that I'm watching this and not porn when I'm on the computer? On second thought, I think I'll just tell her that I'm watching porn.
