A ganglion cyst that was popped in my hand 3 months ago is back. What is te next course of treatment?

Surgery: Drainage of a ganglion cyst tends to have a pretty high rate of recurrence. If the cyst is causing symptoms such as pain or discomfort, I think surgery is the way to go. It's a fairly minor procedure that can be done in less than an hour as an outpatient procedure. Recurrence rates are much lower after surgery.

I thick the ganglion cyst get bigger at my work but go back to the same size went I driver home & get home & move it a little before I sleep whyisthat

Effort: The ganglion is connected to the synovial space between the small bones of the wrist. The more work that the wrist is doing can express more synovial fluid into the ganglion. When at rest it can return to the space and the ganglion appear smaller. I would suspect that the communication between ganglion and wrist is moderate rather than small.

What is a ganglion cyst?

Inflamed tendon: Tendons run in sheaths, similar to the cables on a bicycle. Sometimes a minor trauma can cause the sheath to become inflamed and a small cyst can pop up. This is called a ganglion cyst. They are usually painless and sometimes go away on their own. If it isn't bothering you then you likely don't need to do anything with it. If it is bothering you, see your doc about removing it.

How to know if I have a ganglion cyst?

How to know if I have a ganglion cyst?

See orthopedic Dr.: There are not many problems associated with the wrists short of bony abnormalities. One common problem that can occur at the level of the wrists or coming from any joint is called a ganglion cyst. Ganglion cysts are not usually associated with much pain or discomfort until they become large. They extends from the joint space. It's, like blowing up a tiny balloon from between your knuckles. These often bust when a person bumps them. They will reoccur unless they are surgically tied off. I suggest you see an orthopedic surgeon to further assess and evaluate.

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.

How can I treat a painful ganglion cyst?

How can I treat a painful ganglion cyst?

Arthroscopically: Arthroscopic-assisted ganglion excision is a safe, minimally invasive surgical technique to remove dorsal wrist ganglions. Through small portals, the ganglion stalk (pedicle) can be visualized and excised with precision instrumentation. The cyst can then be decompressed through an accessory portal. The reported recurrence rate is lower than aspiration and open excision.
