Has anyone ever had a ganglion cyst on their wrist?
I've had one on my left hand middle finger, underside of the third joint (so close to my palm). It had a root, tethered and wouldn't move around much, had about 5mm of wiggle room.
Also had one on my chest attached to the midst of my sternum/chest plate. Highly sinewed in, no root but wouldnt move whatso ever. Both were just a little larger then a big pea.
Mine didn't go away on their own, finger was drained with a needle, chest was cut out (I was awake, it was gnarly).
Their full of synovial fluid which is basically bone lube. Often excessive use of finer joint movements cause them to form, and they can be reabsorbed back in. They're not 'healthy', but they aren't unhealthy. Back of the wrist is a normal location and easy to remove surgically - probably poked with a wide needle.
If it causes you discomfort, or you're worried about it not diminishing again say to your doctor that it is an irritate physically to musical playing and you'll probably get it removed.
Olden days they were called bible bumps because people would hit them with a bible/hammer or euqally large thing to rupture them under the skin. Apparently it worked.
