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.

One Factor: In diagnosis of ganglions, we often do transilluminate the lesion with a small penlight. This alone, however, is not diagnostic. We evaluated the nature of the lesion, associated symptoms, its location and its features on clinical examination coupled with necessary imaging and sometimes pathology before making the final call. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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.
