Causes Of Ganglion Cyst
Ganglion cyst: The cause of ganglion cysts is not known. One theory suggests that trauma causes the tissue of the joint to break down forming small cysts, which then join into a larger, more obvious mass. The most likely theory involves a flaw in the joint capsule or tendon covering (sheath) that allows the joint tissue to bulge out.See 3 more doctor answers
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
No: Nothing you did or do would cause it.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
A2 pulley: Ganglions can develop at the edge of the a1 or a2 pulley of the flexor tendons. Ganglions are synovial cysts arising from a tear or opening in the tendon sheath. Synovial tissue causes cyst to form and emerge from the tear that results from over use or trauma.
Sudden soreness & pain in elbow and lower left arm. What could be the cause? I think I have ganglion cyst on left hand also. Should I be worried?
No: No, I would not be worried, but if you are I would not hesitate to be seen. An inflammatory condition, such as lateral epicondylitis, is among the most common causes.
We don't know: If I had the answer to this, I would be a famous man. There are theories, but no right answer. It is thought that a defect in the joint capsule or ligamentous tissue results in tissue weakness, that allows joint fluid to escape into the weakness. As fluid escapes, it gets trapped by the one-way valve effect of the defect, thus producing the cyst.See 2 more doctor answers
Doubtful: In the old days, it was called the "bible" treatment to rupture a ganglion cyst on a person's wrist. As the bible was usually the biggest book in people's houses, it was told to people to swing it hard against the wrist to rupture the cyst. The blow I'm sure hurt more than the cyst rupturing.See 2 more doctor answers

It's possible: If a ganglion is pinching a nerve and if the ganglion does not shrink or disappear, which they do 50% of the time without surgery, then it;s possible to have permanent nerve problems. G.
Yes: Definitely rupturing it either purposefully or accidentally would cause sharp pain and perhaps decreased range of motion for a period of time.See 2 more doctor answers
I'm assuming what I have is a ganglion cyst on my wrist. The only problem I have is that I can't wear my watch. It's about 1/2 in in diameter. Is it necessary to get it removed? Will having it cause damage to my nerves or tendons?
Yes: A ganglion does not need to b removed unless it is symptomatic. If you can not wear a watch then I would suggest removal. Removal should not cause damage to nerves or motor nerves
Mri shows intraosseous ganglion cyst within the cuboid. Cause of my pain? Is it common and how to fix it. Does it keep growing? Anything I can do?
ANSWER: It can get larger. It can cause pain. It can cause a fracture of the cuboid. Treat via removing the mass from the bone and filling the void with bone graft.
Unlikely: Usually ganglion pain is localized to the affected wrist. However if it is affecting movement and one is compensating for the pain it could cause referred pain to other joints on the same extremity.
Ganglion cyst on my wrist ruptured and has caused severe discoloration like severe bruising? Why?
Bleeding: There probably was some bleeding when it ruptured. But don't fear, as long as it improves over the next few days to weeks you should be fine. If it persists, or you have increasing pain or the mass returns you should see an MD
Commonly associated with trauma or arthritis the joint capsule becomes stretched. As the body produces additional synovial fluid to lubricate the joint the loosened joint capsule stretches and fills with fluid...The gnaglion.
