Ganglion Cyst

Ganglion cysts are very common lumps within the hand and wrist that occur adjacent to joints or tendons (cords that connect muscle to bone). The most common locations are the top of the wrist, palm side of the wrist, base of the finger on the palm side, and top of the end joint of the finger. It often resembles a water balloon on a stalk, and is filled with clear fluid or gel. These cysts can often be observed or removed if causing pain.
