Hi Im WAITING For Surgery FOR A Ganglion Cyst HAVE NOW Found 3 More Should I Be Worried As Hand Burns THANKYOU?
Yes: Ganglion cysts on the top side (non-palm side) of the hand can be removed through an aspiration procedure. This is a simple office procedure where a needle is introduced into the ganglion cyst and its contents are aspirated. However, the risk of recurrence following an aspiration procedure is very high--as high as 75-80%. Consider the risks of recurrence when deciding on treatment options. ...Read more
I was supposed to have surgery on my right hand because of a ganglion cyst but the MRI came back and the cyst is gone but I still have a lot of pain.
You have pain: So, you don't have a cyst. You do have pain. Gather the details of where your pain is, what else occurs with it (such as numbness, with location), what activates the pain and then continue the pursuit of a cause. Is your pain only in your hand or do you have other pains also? If so, where else do you have pain? The number and types of other pain conditions will tell you also about your hand. ...Read more

I had carpal tunnel surgery with removal of ganglion cyst 1 month still having a great deal of pain, heat and swelling in my hand. Normal?

It's worth getting it checked out right away by your surgeon. ...Read more

Either the ganglion is pressing against a nerve, or mom was right, and the immobilizer you wore was, indeed, too tight.
Why suffer? Go see a hand surgeon. Ganglion cysts can be aspirated (drained) and sometimes, a little cortisone injected after the aspiration could prevent it from recurring (as they sometimes do). If all else fails, the surgery to remove it is not terribly disabling or complicated. ...Read more

I have a dorsal ganglion cyst on my wrist..It is not painful but is it safe to get removed? Any complications/scaring wit surgery for this?
Try aspiration first: Ganglions are common benign cysts in the hand/wrist. You should have a doctor exam to confirm. I tell my patients who have pain-free cysts to monitor them. Cysts can go away on their own. If they becomes much larger, painful, or limit function, we can perform an aspiration procedure in the office (needle drainage). Surgery is successful for removal the majority of the time with few complications. ...Read more
