Hi, how do I know If my ganglion cyst has ruptured? It's usually the size of a large grape but has swollen all the way up my hand and around my wrist.

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.

See orthopedic Dr.: There are not many problems associated with the wrists short of bony abnormalities.

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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
