A Lump Appeared In The Right Hand After Ganglion Cyst Surgery?
Sorry, I am 37 years old on my right hand. There was a Ganlion but at the beginning of 2018 I was in surgery but at the interval, 3 months later, I was in the same place.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Ganglions are bags of thick, thin-walled clear fluid derived from the synovial membrane lining of a joint or tendon sheath. These cysts are under the skin in the area around the joints. The ganglion is most often found on the wrist, ankle, or back of the knee.
Risk factors for ganglion formation include the age of 15-40 years, excessive use of certain joints, history of single or recurrent trauma to the joints, and osteoarthritis in the joints. Despite the removal of the ganglion, there is still a risk for the recurrence of ganglion formation in the joint. The risk of this recurrence is influenced by:
Gangion removal method; aspiration action has a higher recurrence rate compared to surgical excision
Complete ganglion complexes are removed, including cysts, pedicles, and joint capsule sheaths around; if there are parts left, the chance of recurrence is higher
We recommend that you check yourself back at the surgeon who is treating you. If there are indications based on history and physical examination, and possibly additional investigations if necessary (eg biopsy), the doctor may plan a ganglion management procedure, for example: a second surgery on a recurring ganglion.
As a suggestion, you should prevent trauma to the joints and reduce excessive joint use to reduce the risk of recurrence of the ganglion later in life. To enrich insight, you can read articles about ganglions. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
