VIDEO: Ganglion Cyst Removal Procedure
A ganglion cyst is a small, tumor-like mass that can occur on hands or feet. It is a minor, benign cyst that can manifest in or around joints, tendons, or ligaments. Causes for these cysts are not certain, but are often attributed to trauma around the area.
The cyst is the result of injury to the joint or tendon lining, which creates a soft or spongy build-up that can harden over time. As they enlarge, they can become painful and in some cases, cause nerve damage. A simple office procedure safely removes ganglion cysts. Here’s an interesting video, demonstrating the procedure.
