• Ganglions are a benign bulging out of a fluid filled sac.  Usually they come from a joint or tendon
  • Sometimes they disappear spontaneously, but they can come back and they can also get bigger
  • Ganglions can be present for many years and not cause a problem
  • However ganglions can cause a problem for two main reasons
    • They can squash tissue around them OR they can get pinched when a joint is moving causing pain
    • They can indicate damage to the joint underneath which may lead to more problems if not identified
  • A ganglion can be cut out, but there is a 25% chance it will come back
