What Sets Us Apart

Ganglion cysts are benign, or noncancerous, masses that develop on the wrist and hand, and sometimes on the ankle or foot. These fluid-filled cysts often cause visible lumps. If a cyst puts pressure on the nerves of the hand, wrist, ankle, or foot, it can cause pain, tingling, and muscle weakness or interfere with joint movement.

A ganglion cyst may disappear on its own without treatment. But if it is painful or interferes with the use of your wrist or hand, NYU Langone orthopaedic surgeons and hand therapists offer several treatment options.

Treatment at NYU Langone

A ganglion cyst may not require treatment if it causes no bothersome symptoms. If, however, the cyst causes pain or limits function, NYU Langone specialists offer a variety of nonsurgical treatment options before considering surgery.
