Ganglion Cyst Mri
I was supposed to have surgery on my right hand because of a ganglion cyst but the MRI came back and the cyst is gone but I still have a lot of pain.
You have pain: So, you don't have a cyst. You do have pain. Gather the details of where your pain is, what else occurs with it (such as numbness, with location), what activates the pain and then continue the pursuit of a cause. Is your pain only in your hand or do you have other pains also? If so, where else do you have pain? The number and types of other pain conditions will tell you also about your hand. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems.

Hurt wrist in April, had MRI, shows ganglion cyst, effusion and tear but Dr says nothing wrong, why? Painful and hurts to move fingers.
MRI explains it: "effusion and tear" of the structures in the wrist or hand, could cause the symptoms. Not sure why your doctor said "nothing wrong". Sometimes a surgeon will say "nothing I can do" and a patient hears "nothing wrong". Doctors who specialize in PM&R (or Physiatry), use non surgical ways of treating soft tissue injuries. Might be worth seeing one. Bringing previous records is always a good idea ...Read more

Ganglion cyst size 1.3mm by 6mm on ankle very painful MRI also shows bone marrow edema around superior calcaneous
is surgery my best course of action?
Not yet: Aspiration (using a needle to drain it) would be helpful, but most likely will return, however it's still an option before surgery. Injection steriod into the area is not recommended as it can commonly lead to achilles tendon rupture. If pain continues even after aspiration, then surgery is a viable and safe option as well. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Physical exam: Typically these cysts are readily diagnosed with a physical exam. Certainly, imaging studies such as ultrasound and MRI can also be helpful but are not usually necessary. Transilluminating the cyst with a "flashlight" is part of the physical exam and can help distinguish between a fluid filled mass and a solid one. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: You could have a bone cyst or you could have tendinitis occurring. Usually , a ganglion cyst will be palpable through the skin , and if you hold a small penlight to it, it will trans-iluminate. Some physicians will try to aspirate the gel like fluid from the cyst and then inject a small amount of steroid solution to try to shrink it. A more definitive exam would be an mri, but these are rather costly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hi there, a friend who is a nurse told me I might have a ganglion cyst. How do I know if that's it or if it's something else?
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
