Ganglion Cysts Removal By Glens Falls & Saratoga Wrist Specialist
A ganglion is a benign, fluid-filled cyst that typically forms in the soft tissue of the wrist. It feels like a firm, rubbery lump and is not usually painful unless it grows large enough to rub against something. There may be a tingling sensation in the fingers if the ganglion presses on a nerve in the skin or if the cyst is tapped or bumped.
