Diagnosed near my right ankle not leaning on bones or joints. I have no pain, walk two miles a day but it is suggested I have it removed..I rather wait until I have discomfort. I am 76 in good health and would rather wait until it is uncomfortable or grows.
what are the risks of putting off the surgery. Thank you.

Can be used for acute ankle sprains, chronic ankle instabilities as well as prophylactic use. This low profile ankle brace, made of a rigid unified plastic outer shell, fits easily into all shoe types.
