Ganglion or cyst

Specialty of Orthopaedic Surgery

The ganglion cyst or benign lumps that often grow out of a particular case in hand and wrist. These cysts can be painful especially at the very moment of its appearance or by the constant use of the hand. Ganglia may vary in size and may disappear completely spontaneously. Before opting for a treatment, usually observe their evolution to avoid intervention. But if the ganglion is painful in hand the fluid could be aspirated with a needle or wear a splint to prevent hand movement. If these treatments fail, it would have to resort to surgery to remove the cyst, although it should be noted that these cysts may return.
