Cyst on the ulna side of left wrist

Hi there:

I went to see my ortho doc today because I have a lump
on my left wrist. Now, this HAND was involved in an accident
almost 12 years ago. My question is.....what would cause the
cyst to develop on my left wrist? Thanks, Carl

What did your ortho doc say?

Sounds like it could be a ganglion cyst. There are various things that can trigger the cyst developing. It is hard to know. While they are benign, I had to have one surgically removed because it was pressing on a nerve. Mine developed due to some tendon issues in my wrist. I ended up having that fixed at the same time.

I've also read that arthritic could be involved too. It could be you have contributing factors from your injury.

Did your doc discuss treatment options with you?

Hi:

Yes, we did discuss treatment options, based on the possible upcoming
MRI. He wants to check for soft tissue possibilities. At this point, we are
waiting for the Ins Co to make a decision on whether the treatment
will be covered (as it is worker's comp)...so we'll wait and see.
