What is the lateral semoid?

What does it mean to have fluid in/along the lateral semoid (they said around the big bone that goes to the big toe)? What causes this and what needs to be done to treat it? This showed up in an MRI I had 2 days ago and was told to follow up with my podiatrist but he won't see me. I need to know if this is something to worry about or not. Would going to an orthopedic doc be helpful or should I call my insurance and get a new DPM? I was also fitted for an aircast today (have to wait for insurance approval to get it), will that help with this? Thanks for your help.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
