Ganglions

Ganglions are common, benign, fluid filled lumps that may be found throughout the wrist, hand and fingers

They are associated with joints, tendons and tendon sheaths. The most common sites are the back (dorsum) of the wrist, the front of the wrist, the fingers and then the palm.

Ganglions tend to slowly increase in size, but the size may fluctuate. Wrist ganglions that cannot be seen on the surface my still cause symptoms such as ache and pain.

Even though ganglions are benign, they may require surgical removal if they become symptomatic.
