Ganglion Cyst

What is Ganglion cyst?

A ganglion cyst is a lump that develops on the tendon sheath or joint lining. They can appear on the underside or back of the wrist and are filled with fluid. They can be hard or soft to the touch and tend to go away on their own. The ganglion occasionally can be painful, especially if they are next to a nerve and they never spread to other parts of the body.
