For a ganglion cyst removal at the base of the inside of the middle finger, can this be done in the office setting under local anesthesia?

Local yes, office no: I remove a majority of hand cysts under local anesthetic, but usually at the outpatient surgery center. The need for a tourniquet, other equipment or surgical assistance can make doing procedures in the office impractical. Make sure to see a board certified orthopaedic hand surgeon. ...Read more

Is intermittent throbbing/spasms normal 24 hours after removal of cyst from the top finger joint? Surgery done at surgery center by hand surgeon

Probably: 24 hours is not very long post op. As long as it is intermittent and there is no pus, increasing redness or swelling, I would give it another day or two. If symptoms persist or worsen over and past the 48-72 post op hour mark, call the hand surgeon. ...Read more

I have a small ganglionic cyst on both of my 4th fingers. I have read Red Desert Clay helps with eliminating these cysts. Is that true?

I have a small ganglionic cyst on both of my 4th fingers. I have read Red Desert Clay helps with eliminating these cysts. Is that true?

Seeing is believing.: It certainly sounds like this treatment has appeared to help some people with ganglions. The evidence seems to be a little anecdotal, which may not be based on real empirical evidence. But, what the heck, give it a try. If it doesn't work, well, you can always have it excised. ...Read more

Should I be worried about blood cysts? I keep noticing what I think would be best described as small blood cysts (blood filled pockets of skin) that generally pop easily (usually just by a little pressure from my finger, though they've been getting more d

Should I be worried about blood cysts? I keep noticing what I think would be best described as small blood cysts (blood filled pockets of skin) that generally pop easily (usually just by a little pressure from my finger, though they've been getting more d

I: I think it would be worth visiting your doctor to discuss this. One condition that can cause little "blood cysts" is thrombocytopenic pupura, which is caused by an abnormally low platelet count. If that's what's going on, then it would be important to know because it would put you at risk for major hemorrhages and because it could reflect other health problems. ...Read more

I got a something that appears to be a cyst, I have had cyst before like on my finger, but I think this time is different because it got it near my male genituls and I think it may be something I got due to an ingrown hair, I'm very impatient so I squeeze

Needs to be checked: We can not say what exactly it is. It might be a small abscess or a cyst. I suggest you consult your doctor to find out what it is. You squeezed it and did it drain pus or blood or nothing. Get it checked from your doctor as you might need Anyibiotics and / or incision and drainage or if it is a cyst causing symptoms then it may need to be removed surgically ...Read more
