Thumb and wrist pain in left hand when wrist is bent forward (hand towards me). Pain located on the thumb side of the wrist only. What could this be?
Yes: Ganglion cysts on the top side (non-palm side) of the hand can be removed through an aspiration procedure.

However, the risk of recurrence following an aspiration procedure is very high--as high as 75-80%. Consider the risks of recurrence when deciding on treatment options. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
