spi-common-wrist-hand-fingers-460x230

A ganglion is a bulge of swelling overlying a joint capsule or tendon sheath, most commonly occurring in the wrist and hand. When there is a weak point in the lining of a joint or tendon potentially caused by overuse, it balloons outwards with fluid, creating the bulge or nodule under the skin.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Hard, rubbery nodule underneath the skin
  • Pain with movement of muscles under the ganglion
  • Swelling
  • Pain and tenderness over the nodule
  • No pain when not moved
