Dykanka was first mentioned in 1658 as a small village, though the area was populated for centuries before. Within the area of modern Dykanka, traces exist of Scythian settlement at various times. Also found were the remains of a settlement that had at one point been razed and the remains of two settlements from the 7th-6th centuries BC.
In 1430, the Dykanka area came under the ownership of Tatar Murza Leksada Mansurksanovych, the future Prince Alexander Glinski, and, according to Leo Padalka and other pre-revolutionary (before 1917) historians, Dykanka was among his ″settlements″.
Dykanka has held the status of urban-type settlement since 1957.
