Has a cyst formed on your wrists or hands? A ganglion cyst is a lump that commonly develops along the tendons or joints of your wrist or hands. Other common locations are the ankles and feet, although they may occur near other joints as well. If aspiration or immobilization of the joint where the ganglion cyst is located has not helped, then it may be time to discuss surgical options. Schedule a consultation with a surgeon at Meridian Plastic Surgery to discuss your options.
