Case description

Ganglion cyst of the wrist is a mass filled with a gelatinous fluid. It transilluminates which means that it transmits light through it. Usually it is asymptomatic, however you need to check if it doesn't compress the nerves or affects the circulation. Usually observation without any treatment is enough, but in some cases aspiration or even surgery may be needed.
