Hello Devy, Thank you for the question.
Do you mean a ganglion cyst? Ganglion cysts are fluid-filled lumps that can grow on tendons (the tissue that connects muscles to bones) or joints. In general, these cysts appear on the wrist or other joints in the hand. The exact cause of the appearance of a ganglion cyst is not known with certainty. This cyst is thought to grow because of a collision in the tendon or joint tissue or because of a defect in the joint capsule or tendon. In general, if this cyst does not cause any symptoms, then this ganglion cyst does not require further treatment, but if this cyst causes pain or limited joint movement, the doctor will suggest further treatment which can be aspiration / suction of the cyst fluid or surgical removal. cyst. Please consult further with the orthopedic specialist who treats you. Avoid breaking these cysts and taking paracetamol if the pain gets worse. You are also advised to reduce joint motion if the cyst is causing pain.
