Ganglions are: Fluid filled sacs from a joint or tendon sheath. They are not harmful but can cause local irritation. And at times joint pain. They may be sign of remote injury or arthritis as well but can form in the absence of those with normal structures. They can be observed, aspirated and injected or excised depending upon location, severity and "need" for treatment. Make sure there is the right diagnosis.
