What are ganglion cysts?
Ganglion cysts of the hand and wrist are very common, may be found in all ages and show up as protruding bumps near your joints or tendons. Often they appear like a bubble or water balloon on a stalk underneath the skin.
Ganglion cysts can be small and grow larger or fluctuate in size. They consist of a clear jelly like fluid and may disappear over time on their own.
If they prove painful or limit your activities, you can find ganglion cyst pain relief treatment at the hand specialist center of Dr. Jason Ashford in Houston and Conroe, Texas.
Typical places ganglion cysts of the hand or wrist occur:
- Top of the wrist
- Wrist palm side
- Top of the joint end finger
- Palm side at the base of a finger
