Live Surgery Ganglion Cyst Dorsal Wrist (Hand)
ganglion cyst or synovial cyst or myxoid cyst, also known as a Bible cyst or Bible bump, is a non-neoplastic soft tissue lump that may occur in any joint, but most often occurs on or around joints and tendons in the hands or feet. It is caused by leakage of fluid from the joint into the surrounding tissue.
A ganglion cyst is a noncancerous lump that most commonly develops in the wrist or hand. Some occur in the ankles or feet. If a ganglion cyst presses on a nerve, it may be painful. Depending on its location, a ganglion cyst may restrict movement.
Ganglion cysts are noncancerous lumps that most commonly develop along the tendons or joints of your wrists or hands. They also may occur in the ankles and feet. Ganglion cysts are typically round or oval and are filled with a jelly-like fluid.
