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. It will be much safer to get treated by Our Doctor, for more information or to book an appointment with Singapore Sports and Orthopaedic Clinic, you can call (+65) 6475 8011, the hotline is open 24 hours.
