Isolated. Isolated cysts in the carpal bones are typically benign, but you don't give any detail as to size or number etc... Having said that if there are symptoms associated there should be a work that may include ct scan and/or an mri. The fact that you're wearing a splint suggests that you do have some symptoms. The cysts may be related to the pain or they might be so-called "red herrings", that is misleading i.e. There may be some other cause of the pain. Bottom line you should be evaluated further.
Intraosseous. Intraosseous ganglion cysts are rare causes of hand and wrist pain. Isolated cases of ganglion cysts occurring in the wrist bones and in the hand bones have been reported. Symptomatic intraosseous cyst could be treated by curettage and injectable calcium phosphate bone cement (cpc) or dry cadaver bone grafting. More details about your complain and imaging studies like xrays and ct scans, will help your doctor get a better undestanding of your problem.
Small. Small multiple cysts in the wrist bones such as the lunate or capitate are very common. All too often after a MRI or ct scan the written report by the radiologist identifies these cysts sending the patient seeking treatment or at least a consultation from a hand surgeon. Usually these multiple cystic structures are from arthritis and osteoarthritis is the most common. Rheumatoid arthritis will also show these cysts at the level of the joint, gout on plain x-ray will show small erosions that may be misidentified as cysts, in chronic gout you may see these in the finger bones as well. Bone has a pattern to it such as wood has a grain. The imperfections in bone pattern also sometimes fool the observer into thinking there is something in the bone. With all that, make sure that you follow up and get evaluated, but the scenaio I mention above is all too common where wrist pain prompts an MRI and the report prompts this question. Still anyone who has had a positive finding should seek further input in person from a physician and not rely on this site solely.
I have a intracessous lunate bone cyst that is growing. It was found six months ago after my wrist would not stop hurting. What happens next?
Get checked by Ortho. Any cyst that is growing and causing pain in the bone requires consultation with an Orthopedic surgeon. Some such cysts turn out to be giant cell tumor of the bone and may need surgical intervention. Most are treatable provided they are not too big...so get it checked while it is still small (? what size/dimensions is this cyst??).
I dislocated my lunate bone in my wrist on the 5th and when I was in the er, they didn't set it. Having more pain than before. Should I go back or no?
You can. If the main issue is pain you can definitely go back to ER if you do not have a primary care provider or an Urgent Care in the area. If you want to have yor dislocation fixed you need a hand surgeon or an Ortho specializing in hand injuries. Usually ER will give you few phone numbers in the area to call and see a surgeon in the office.
Pain in right wrist since 3 months. Have taken ct, mri&bone scan. It seems to be an intraosseous ganglion cycst in lunate bone. Is surgery required?
Pain ok. If you have a ganglion cyst it may continue to cause pain but can be tolerated. The surgery may work but it can recur. Try to see if you can tolerate it if not then go for surgery.
Went to er and said I dislocated my lunate bone in my wrist after a fall. They put it in a ortho glass wrapped it up. Still hurts to move my hand &arm?
Ortho follow up. You need follow up with Ortho/ Hand Surgery. Occult fractures are sometimes missed initially and there should not be pain in your arm.
See a surgeon soon. If your lunate bone is dislocated it has to be reduced soon or there will be a lot of swelling in your wrist amd bas consequences. Did they try to reduce it in the ER? Or did you get sent home with the lunate not reduced? In any case you should see a hand surgeon ASAP. You are certainly going to need surgery.
