    Default Ganglion cyst

    I have one and it has not gone away.

    I am going to phone a hand specialist.

    Anyone ever had one?

    That's why I was asking.

    I only got it since I started plumbing and electrical work.

    My husband had one on his wrist Ian, he had it taken off. We always thought he got it from resting his hand a certain way on the desk while he was drawing.

    I have/had one - comes back whenever I do a lot of plastering.

    while banging away on brass with a chisel and hammer...

    it smells like......victory......

    do not hit your thumb...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilonidal_cyst

    most of my life and have had to deal with it....

    I was told I could have it removed but I was also told it it was common for them to come back so I never opted for going under the knife...

    I had it lanced once when I was 22 and since then, have taken care of it when it "reared" its ugly head, my self...
