Get her evaluated: Any new pain with the rupture of a cyst should be evaluated promptly by a physician.

I'm assuming what I have is a ganglion cyst on my wrist. The only problem I have is that I can't wear my watch. It's about 1/2 in in diameter. Is it necessary to get it removed? Will having it cause damage to my nerves or tendons?

I have a ganglion cyst on my wrist and it recently grew.  is there any chance it will get smaller on its own, or do they always get bigger over time?

Wait and watch: Ganglion cysts are common, often grow slowly or may remain unchanged in size for months. Not likely to get smaller on its own. You should get it checked by a good surgeon once yearly unless it is causing you pain or discomfort. It is easy to remove it, if you have any symptoms. Tell us where exactly it is located(front or back of the wrist) and for how long has it been there? ...Read more

I have a dorsal ganglion cyst on my wrist..It is not painful but is it safe to get removed? Any complications/scaring wit surgery for this?

Try aspiration first: Ganglions are common benign cysts in the hand/wrist. You should have a doctor exam to confirm. I tell my patients who have pain-free cysts to monitor them. Cysts can go away on their own. If they becomes much larger, painful, or limit function, we can perform an aspiration procedure in the office (needle drainage). Surgery is successful for removal the majority of the time with few complications. ...Read more

Can i pop my ganglion cyst on my wrist with a thumbtack and push out the gel substance I've tried hitting it with a book and it wont work and I've had it for like 6 months now and i want to get rid of it

Can i pop my ganglion cyst on my wrist with a thumbtack and push out the gel substance I've tried hitting it with a book and it wont work and I've had it for like 6 months now and i want to get rid of it

This : This is definitely not a good idea, you could cause further injury. You can see a dermatologist or your primary care provider for treatment. A common procedure is placing a needle into the cyst drawing the liquid out, and then injecting a steroid, and then splinting the wrist to keep it from moving. This fairly successful treatment and is a good option for you since you have had the cyst for 6 months. Good luck. ...Read more

Wrangling Wrist Pain: Anatomically, wrist pain due to a ganglion cyst is thought to be related to a distension of the lining of the joint or the surface of the bone itself due to fluid accumulation under pressure. Pain may recur after surgery due to inflammation in the joint, synovium, or the bone itself. The simple fact you had one means some force affected your anatomy to respond with a cyst. Change your activity. ...Read more

I have a bump about the size of a marble on the back of my left hand, at my wrist. I had it checked out. We thought it was a ganglion cyst but it wasn't that. What could it be?

Boss: The top two diagnoses for bumps on the top of the hand are ganglion cyst and carpometacarpal boss. How do you know that it isn't a ganglion cyst? If you are certain, i would refer you to a health care professional for a diagnosis. Carpometacarpal bosses are small bone spurs or outgrowths from the corresponding joint. If they are painless, observation is recommended. ...Read more

Either : Either the ganglion is pressing against a nerve, or mom was right, and the immobilizer you wore was, indeed, too tight. Why suffer? Go see a hand surgeon. Ganglion cysts can be aspirated (drained) and sometimes, a little cortisone injected after the aspiration could prevent it from recurring (as they sometimes do). If all else fails, the surgery to remove it is not terribly disabling or complicated. ...Read more
