Hi

I Have a lump on my right wrist at the bottom of my little finger on the round bone where it joins the wrist. i think it is caused from using a mouse and rubbing on the mouse mat everyday, as it goes red and painfull whilst i am at work, does any one else suffer with this, and is it a ganglion?

    I have been to see my GP last month, due to extreme pain in my right wrist. The doctor told me it was a ganglion, (it is at the joint with my wrist and base to the thumb). He suggested waiting to see if it goes of its own accord. I am in too much pain to wait, therefore he suggested seeing a consultant at the hospital. Have an appointment mid June to see what they can do. Has anybody had successful surgery or pain relief. I use the mouse every day as I am a IT Consultant. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

    I have been to see a consultant yesterday with regards to my painful ganflion. He has suggested having it surgically removed under general anesthetic. I'm scared!!!

    Any body had successful surgery. Was it painful afterwards, and what were the steps before.

    Very worried, been having nightmares last night!!! not slept:?

    Yes. I have the same exact thing and it's really starting to annoy me. I work 12 hour shifts (no more than 2 or 3 in a row) but after working a couple of days, mine is real sore. I believe it is also from clicking the mouse and rubbing the mouse pad. Typing does not help either. Sometimes I can feel the soreness up to my elbow. I play alot of darts too and it really affects my game. The doctor told me it was a cyst and could have someone lance it but told me just to soak it in warn water at this stage. Not sure how that's going to help though because the lump is hard. It's not like swelling. I'm going to give it a try and see how it works. I have also used a trackball mouse and that seems to help a little. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
