I have a ganglion cyst on my wrist! Do you think it would a numbness in my fingers?

Possibly. Ganglions are fluid filled cysts. They can cause local pressure and mass effect. Occasionally, cysts can put pressure on a nearby nerve, causing symptoms of numbers, tingling, weakness and.Or pain.
Depends . Depends on the location, ie dorsal or ventral surface of wrist. If it is getting larger and adjacent to radial or ulnar nerve then one can get tingling or numbness in the distribution of that nerve. Surgery will correct the problem.

Ganglion cyst and numbing in hand, what can cause this? Hi. I have a ganglion cyst on my left hand near my wrist. It is causing great discomfort and pain. Now my fingers and part of my hand is numb. I wore a emobilizer last night and my mom thinks it is n

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...

Many . Many ganglion cysts will go away with time. Sometimes they burst/rupture on their own. Some cysts need to be drained with a needle, but often come back over time. Ultimately, surgery may be necessary to keep it from coming back. Some patients with cysts have numbness, and the splint may be causing it. Seeing a hand and wrist surgeon is a good idea. I've attached a link to one of my videos that may help (there's some surgery in the video, so don't watch if you get queasy!). Whatever you do, don't use the most common youtube solution, which involves hitting your wrist with a book! Read more...

Can my ganglion cyst on my finger be the reason that my wrist feels numb?

Not likely. It is rare for a problem in the finger to cause symptoms in the wrist. Ganglion cysts in the finger are usually due to arthritis in the joints, especially the distal interphalengeal joint (dip or last knuckle). More likely you have carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) or cervical radiculopathy (herniated disk in the neck). See a board certified orthopaedic hand surgeon. Read more...
Probably not. A ganglion on the finger would not likely cause numbness of the wrist. A ganglion of the wrist could cause numbness of the distal fingers. Read more...

Hurt wrist in April, had MRI, shows ganglion cyst, effusion and tear but Dr says nothing wrong, why? Painful and hurts to move fingers.

MRI explains it. "effusion and tear" of the structures in the wrist or hand, could cause the symptoms. Not sure why your doctor said "nothing wrong". Sometimes a surgeon will say "nothing I can do" and a patient hears "nothing wrong". Doctors who specialize in PM&R (or Physiatry), use non surgical ways of treating soft tissue injuries. Might be worth seeing one. Bringing previous records is always a good idea. Read more...
