If nothing helps a hand surgeon can remove it. Or. You can leave it. ...Read more

I thick my ganglion cyst is going down as fast as it go up if it is why or how is it go down as fast as it go up it on the top of my wrist?
Synovial fluid: Fills ganglion cysts. These cysts are fluid filled sacs and synovial fluid is what lubricates the joint, fluid enters the cyst through a tiny attachment from the joint and makes the cyst large . This is why activity or force seemingly makes the ganglion larger as more pressure in the joint leaks into the cyst. Typically it's a like one way valve into the cyst but they can drain back spontaneously. ...Read more

Some never swell and some can swell for extended periods. Follow the post-operative instructions and avoid over use until the wound can get a good start at healing. ...Read more
I have a lump on my wrist ivet researched it and i think it is ganglion cyst its only small. Aparently you can hit it and i will go down? Is this true
Hitting cysts: if you hit it you will only succeed in fracturing your wrist which is not advisable at all. You may also burst the sac of the cyst and flatten it by getting the liquid out but it will seal itself eventually and fill up again because it is connected to the wrist joint underneath and that is full of liquid and will help replenish that sac. Best way to get rid of it is unfortunately surgery. ...Read more
