What Is The Cure For Ganglion Cysts On The Back Of The Hand?
Assalamu alaikum, r n Excuse me, I have a ganglion on the back of my right hand, I have done 2 operations, the first was in January 2017, because I reappeared I did the second operation in December 2017, after 2 months of doing the second operation, the ganglion reappeared, and this is torturous. I often feel pain and soreness in my right hand, it is difficult to do activities and the size of the ganglion is bigger than before, do I have to do the third operation? Or is there another way? R nThank you
Ganglion is a cyst or lump formation due to a sac filled with synovial fluid in the joints or tendons. The size can vary from small to large. The cause of ganglion cyst formation is not certain but one of them is influenced by trauma to the joint so that the tissue under the skin can be damaged or also due to damage to the tendon protector.
If the ganglion interferes, then action is needed. One of the efforts is to immobilize or reduce activity in the diseased joint, aspiration or withdrawal of fluid, or it is also necessary to re-do the removal either by open surgical techniques or by arthroscopic surgical techniques. Check yourself back to the surgeon for further treatment.
Try to reduce activity in these joints the next time the removal is carried out because repeated trauma is one of the causes of recurrent ganglion. You can also use a brace or brace to reduce excess motion in the joint.
