What is Ganglion?

Ganglion can be found in any joint and is most commonly on the wrist. When there is a leakage of the lubricate jelly-like fluid that helps to provide “cushion” for the joints, it will form Ganglion Crystal which cause swellness on your wrist.

Symptoms of Ganglion

  • Painless swelling found at any joints
  • Not inflammed
  • A sense of fullness and tightness


Causes of Ganglion

  • Weakness of a tendon or joint space
  • Trauma to the tendon or joint


Treatment for Ganglion

  • Draining out the ganglion by using an aspiration
  • Sugerical removal


Self-Diagnose can bring more harm than treating it. It is good to know more about the injury but definitely not to the point of self-treatment.
