Re: Round Lump on Wrist
Most likely a ganglion cyst- very common, used to be called "bible cysts" because they would smash them with a bible to get them go go away. If the cyst is drained, it will probably come back in the future, because draining doesn't get rid of the cyst wall ( a sack that has developed inside there). The cyst may come and go spontaneously. My take on it is, if it doesn't bother you too much, don't have it cut out. That location of a cyst is close to your radial artery, and I wouldn't want a surgeon messing around there unless it really bothered me. Hope this helped!
p.s.: I have the same thing on my left wrist- been there for about a year.
