Default Best treatment for small plantar fibroma?

I have what seems to be a small plantar fibroma (5 x 4mm) just superficial to the distal plantar fascia (from the ultrasound report; i'm no expert.) It doesn't bother me too much yet (had it for four weeks) but without looking at it a podiatrist recommended surgery. Seeing this is not the advice I've read on the net, I'd be interested in other opinions. Also does anyone know if Verapamil gel is a good treatment, as I've been reading some good reports on the net about it. Thanks in advance!

Also from the report: "A well circumscribed, hypoechoic solid soft tissue mass measuring 5 x 4mm in diameter is present just superficial to the distal plantar fascia. It is avascular. It is separate to the fascia itself.

Conclusion: the appearances are non-specific, but most consistent with a small fibroma.
