I was diagnosed with 2 ganglion cysts after confirmation from ultra sound, 1 on my left shoulder that is quite spongy, and one on my right shoulder that for 2 weeks was very hard and has grown very quick. I am experiencing a constant dull ache in my right shoulder that radiates down my arm. I am due to see my doctor this week and wondering what treatment he may request.

My primary physician diagnosed my ganglion cyst on my wrist. Now I have them on three fingers and on the palm of the other hand. Guess I should go back to the doctor to have them removed. They are weird little things that pop up on you.

I was diagnosed with a ganglion cyst on the back of my hand. The doctor said in all his years, he had never seen one that moved when I moved my finger. But he did not do any x-rays or MRI on it. Just wanted to do surgery. I have yet to find another doctor for a 2nd opinion.
