Bone Cyst Wrist
I have a intracessous lunate bone cyst that is growing. It was found six months ago after my wrist would not stop hurting. What happens next?
Get checked by Ortho: Any cyst that is growing and causing pain in the bone requires consultation with an Orthopedic surgeon. Some such cysts turn out to be giant cell tumor of the bone and may need surgical intervention. Most are treatable provided they are not too big...so get it checked while it is still small (? what size/dimensions is this cyst??).
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Had bone cyst removed through surgery ten days ago in right hand. Didn't have swelling much, but woke up to noticeable swelling. Should I be concerned?
Yes: It could be a post op infection. See your dr.
Broke right hand along outside edge 3 years ago. Have a bone cyst, need surgery will a brace help with pain until surgery?
Benign bone tumor: An aneurysmal bone cyst is a benign condition of the bones, commonly in a child which can lead to fractures. The cyst area often expands and weakens the bone, making it prone to fracture. The fracture typically heals, but the condition may persist and fracture may occur again, sometimes necessitating surgery. The humerus bone near the shoulder is a common location for this.
Its a defect in bone: The hip joint is made of two parts. The head of the femur (thigh bone) fits into the cup or socket of the acetabulum (pelvis). If there is an injury of the hip from trauma or arthritis, you can get resorption of bone on either side of the joint. The area of resorption fills with fluid and creates a defect or cyst in the bone.
Bone cyst on X-ray: If the "bone cyst" is in the same location as the site of your previous allograft, then the x-ray is probably showing the allograft and not a bone cyst.
Tumor: It is caused by a highly vascular benign tumor treated by excision and bone grafting. Not usually dx'd until there is an accompanying fract as the bone is thinned by the tumors expansion
Depends: Depending on your age 6-12 weeks.Get a more detailed answer ›
I have a small hard bump on the top of my head that has grown a little over the few months. Feels almost as hard as bone. Cyst-like maybe. Conern?
Dermatology: Certainly have it checked since it in a sun exposed area- probably benign; however must be examined- cannot answer online.
Surgery: Bone cysts do not always need treatmen, however if large as we sometimes see in the heel bone, they may cause fracture, traditionally the have been surgically cleaned out and packed with bone graft. Ther have been a few reports in the literature of endoscopic clean out and grafting.See 1 more doctor answer
ABC: Aneurysmal bone cysts treated surgically heal in approximately 6 weeks--depending on the personality and location and size of the cyst. If it is fractured/displaced it may take somewhat longer.See 1 more doctor answer
Different: A bone spur is an area of bone growth where a muscle, tendon, or ligament inserts. This attachment is called an enthesis. A bone cyst is a cyst within the substance of the bone and, as such, contains fluid.
There no f 2 bone: Test I know off, may be you mean c2, t2 or l2. Let me know.

Rarely: They usually occur in people under age 20. While not impossible, it would be rare. See an orthopaedic surgeon, preferably an orthopaedic oncologist (an orthopaedist trained in treating bone-joint-muscle tumors, both benign and malignant). Others can do tests (mri, ct for example), but if someone suggests biopsy, the orthopaedic oncologist is the person to see.
If you had a bone cyst near a growth plate, would you notice if it grew into and damages the growth plate? (ie would you have any symptoms?)
Probably not: If it affected the growth plate the redultant deformity would occur so slowly that you may not notice-I would highly recommend that you follow up with your orthopedist with exam and x-rays as frequently as he recommends.
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
