Good afternoon Doctor … my child has a ganglion over his right hand … by the doctor who recommended surgery. Does this ganglion surgery need general or local anesthesia?

1 Answer:

Hello Winarni,


Thank you for the question.

A ganglion is a cyst that is formed from joint fluid sticking out of a nearby joint or tendon. This condition is actually not dangerous, and also does not have the potential to develop into malignancy. However, if the size is enlarged, in addition to causing pain and limiting movement, this condition can certainly interfere with appearance. You will be more at risk of ganglion if you are between 20-40 years old, female, have experienced joint or tendon injuries, or have osteoarthritis.


Ganglions which are quite large in size, and do not improve with immobilization or aspiration, are advised to be treated with surgery. With this operation, the potential for a ganglion to recur can be greatly reduced (though not impossible). Frequently, ganglion removal operations are performed under local anesthesia. Even so, in some conditions, general anesthesia can also be performed for the sake of smooth operation. The surgeon who examines you is certainly more aware of this, because he is examining you directly. Therefore, many consult directly with him yes ..


I hope this helps.
