Need to be clear, have you ever checked your complaints to the doctor and diagnosed as ganglion cyst?
Ganglion cysts generally appear as a lump whose consistency is soft, well-defined, about 2.5 inches in size, easy to move, and is located in the joint area, for example on the wrists, arms, or legs. If the size is enlarged or causes pressure on the nerves around it, ganglion cysts can be painful. This cyst is not yet known the originator. However, many experts suspect this is related to injuries or recurrent inflammation of the joints that causes abnormal protrusion. Often, the clinical symptoms of ganglion cysts are difficult to distinguish from several other conditions, such as sebaceous cysts, dermoid cysts, lipomas, folliculitis, or other benign and malignant tumors. Therefore, the right diagnosis should only be concluded through a direct examination by a doctor.
If you have already seen a doctor and have been diagnosed with ganglion cysts, there are several possible treatments that your doctor will recommend to you, including imbilization, aspiration, or surgery. Determination of the best treatment is done of course by assessing the size and symptoms that arise due to ganglion cysts. Until now, only compresses have not been known to cause cysts to shrink.
It is better if you consult directly with your doctor or surgeon regarding the condition that you are experiencing, along with the best treatment that needs to be done, so that the cyst does not get bigger and cause a disturbing complaint, you should take the following steps:
Rest the hands that have cysts from excessive mobility. Do not press, massage, or give careless treatment to the cyst without doctor's advice. If there is pain in the cyst, compress with warm water so that pain decreases.
