Treatment Of The Lump On The Left Wrist?
Hello doctor … I diagnosed myself with a ganglion after googling and matched it with the physical condition of the lump on my left wrist. Before the ganglion appeared, I checked with a neurologist with an initial diagnosis of CTS and was treated with drugs and vitamin D. Suddenly some time ago I found a lump in the same hand. Do you think I went to a specialist for ganglion? Is it still a neurologist? Thank you for the info.
Hello, thank you for your question.
A lump on the wrist may be caused by a ganglion cyst. These cysts not only appear on the wrist, but can also occur in other joints. However, to make sure the lump is a ganglion cyst, of course, requires an immediate examination by a doctor.
Ganglion cysts are sacs filled with synovial fluid over tendons (the tissue that connects bones to muscles). Synovial fluid is a clear, jelly-like texture of the joint. These cysts are not dangerous, but can be aesthetically pleasing.
Ganglion cysts can be handled by surgeons. There are several ways to remove a ganglion, namely by aspiration (withdrawal of fluid using a needle) and surgery. Surgery can be done with an open incision or with the arthroscopic method. The examining surgeon will determine which type of therapy is best for you.
