Finger joint ganglion

Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint ganglion

finger

Ganglion cysts most commonly occur on the back of the hand, at the wrist joint and can also develop on the palm side of the wrist. Ganglion cysts arise from the capsule of a joint or the sheath of a tendon. They can be found at different places on the wrist. You can ask your specialist to rule out spurs by an X-ray, infections due to the symptoms of inflammation and also any lipoma or giant cell tumors with the help of scans and examination. You can consider surgery for a complicated cyst.
A few years ago, I found another one on the right hand on the middle finger in the middle joint. Doesn't bother me so I left it alone. Then about a year ago I got a lump on the top of my left foot that turned out to be ganglion also. Had it removed in Oct. Two months later another one appeared a little further up on the top of my foot. Had it drained and steroid injected. Three months later the same thing happened, but it was a bit bigger. Had it drained, no steroid.
It is a ganglion (tissue mass) of the adjacent distal interphalangeal joint (DIJ), caused by leakage of fluid from the joint into the surrounding tissue. Common treatments consist of injection of corticosteroids, repeated puncture and drainage of the cyst or surgical excision. If the symptoms persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. The other possibilities of cutaneous horn and a callus have to be ruled out. I hope it helps.
on my right hand my pinky had two lumps on it one on the middle joint going towards my other fingers and the other on the top joint going the opposite way and it is sometimes sore to write my leg has a lump about my shin area i have been to the orthopedics but they can find anything and it has nearly been a year and a half and they keep saying take painkillers but they don't help and they are bad for your stomach and they are horrible to take.
Hello, This sore on the finger can be an infected myxoid cyst, ganglion cyst or herpetic whitlow. It is a painful viral infection occurring on the fingers or around the fingernails. Herpetic whitlow is caused by infection with the herpes simplex virus (HSV). I sincerely advise you to consult a dermatologist and discuss these possibilities with him. Infected cysts may need excision and drainage or surgical excision.
I have developed a lump in the joint between my thumb and the finger next to it. It appears to be near the joint in the webbing of my thumb and is approx 1cm wide. My thumb is extremely painful if i accidently clip it against something or put any pressure on it. I occasionally get pins and needles in my hand and it may be disturbing the blood circulation. Any assistance is appreciated. It has similar symptons to a ganglion cyst but i am unsure if you can get them in this particular area.

A mucous or myxoid cyst arises from degeneration in the connective tissue on the top of the last segment of the finger. It may connect with the joint at the end of the finger. A ganglion cyst is a swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. I would suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation for this. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
HELP..... I have this "bump" on the back of the ring finger on the right hand. It is right above the knuckle joint. It is white in the center and has a ring of dark (red) around it. I thought it looked like a planters wart. I bought some wart remover from drug store. After a couple of days when I took the bandage off as per directions. It was white around it and the center was a hole. Didn't have any drainage. Don't remember any strong odor.

it is about 1cm long and protrudes from the inner portion of her pinky slightly above the main joint where the finger bents (not the joint by the nail). it is painless and i went online and searched and searched and i'm pretty sure it is a giant-cell tumor, which is supposed to be benign. my question is, do you think she should get it removed or just let it be. the problem is, it seems to be a pretty invasive procedure and my mom would rather just let it be if it is going to be benign.

Is it painful when you straighten or bend your finger? This could be a Ganglion cyst. Usually this presents as: a soft immovable bump that changes size. The swelling may appear over time or appear suddenly and cause some degree of pain, usually following acute or repetitive trauma. The pain is usually nonstop, aching, and made worse by joint motion.Many cysts can disappear without any treatment at all. Though, aspiration or surgical removal are usually done.
I have had many ganglion's and still do. These are definitely not ganglion cyst. One of my fingers the right ring finger has a sensitivity to end of finger like I banged it or something just hurts inside. Doctor had no idea wanted to give me something for pain, said no as it is just minimal pain. Yet, when I search online all can see blisters or really raised areas, or rashes.
Without examination,it is difficult to confirm a diagnosis,but some of the possibilities for your symptoms are ganglion(lump which shows up next to a joint or a tendon),wart(occurs when areas of the skin grow faster than normal,caused by HPV) or heberden’s node(hard or bony swellings which can develop on fingers). Treatment for all are entirely different.Moreover,without examination,it is difficult confirming a diagnosis.So I feel that an examination by a dermatologist will be the best.

In all probability you have a ganglion (cyst) or a neurofibroma. Both can cause pain in the wrist joint. A ganglion is a sac-like swelling or cyst formed from lining of a joint or from a tendon. A neurofibroma is a collection of nerve and fibrous tissue. If they are causing pain and pressure symptoms they need to be removed. Please consult your PCP to start with and get a referral for a surgeon. Take care!

I noticed what appeared to be a pimple POINT A on the palm of my right hand, approximately 1 inch in from the base of my index finger POINT B. . A week or so later I observed slight puffeness from point A to point B, a few days passed when I observed puffiness from POINT A to the center of my little finger & POINT B. I have started to feel a slight pain every now and then on the back side of my hand. Health is good, BP, Etc. I see my Doctor on a regular basis.
There can be several conditions leading to a bump on the finger joint. One most common cause is a ganglion cyst which is a harmless fluid filled growth. Inflammation from arthritis can also cause this bump. If rheumatoid arthritis causes the bump it is called Bouchard’s node while in osteoarthritis it is known as a Heberden's node. Gout can also cause a bump on the finger. It is best to see a doctor and get it examined. Only clinical examination can confirm the cause. Do keep us posted.
They do arise in the joint , but may show up under the tendon sheath along a finger. No, this is not an ER kind of thing. Tell your doc next visit. If it keeps you from full use of your hand be seen earlier. Treatments include letting them be, injecting them with steroids, and surfgical removal, but they can always return. Old home remedy was to hit them hard with the Bible which would suddenly pop them, or, alternatively, to put the fear of God into them.
About three weeks ago I noticed a painful lump on the underside of my joint on my small finger. It felt like a blister and when I applied pressure you could see a small blue area, smaller than a pea. I don't remember having hurt myself...now three weeks later it is still there, but not really painful. You can feel that it seems to be moveable to a small extent. It hasn't grown any bigger, but it still has the blue color when pressure is applied to the skin. What could this be?
in the scaphoid and one in the middle finger of the same hand. Doctor said the middle finger joint is most likely due to injury and unrelated. I also have had an EMG done that showed about a 25% reduction in neurological activity in my Ulnar nerve. So, I have a scheduled surgery on October 5th for excision of the "bone cyst" (what they are calling it now), cutterage, and bone graph. At the same time I will have my ulnar nerve released but not transported.
It moves back and forth when my middle finger is moved. It is hard, not painful, and has been there for over a year. It seems to be attached to the tendons in my hand, very strange. What in the world is it?
A swelling on the pinkie finger is most likely a ganglion. This can arise due to repetitive use of joint or due to rheumatoid arthritis or sometimes without a cause too. It is usually a swelling in the tendon of a muscle. Another possibility is neurofibromas (benign collection of nerves and fibers). It can also be a bone growth. It is less likely to be cancer. However, nothing can be said for sure unless you show this to a doctor. Take care!
