Getting gone with the ganglion.
Do you have a ganglion that has been or is becoming an issue? Well say no more, I am here to help with a successful procedure of ganglion removal in Cheshire.
A ganglion is filled with a jelly-like substance called synovial fluid and hence why they can also be referred to or called a synovial cyst, don’t let the name get you thinking they are both still exactly the same, there is no difference between them. You will be able to notice and identify a ganglion as it is a soft lump under the skin.
If you aren’t fully sure what a ganglion is then the best and pretty much only way to describe it is by saying it is a swelling filled with fluid near a joint or tendon, the most common places that ganglion’s form can be found is the wrists, hands or fingers. The sizes of ganglion’s can vary, some can be small, similar to the size of a pea and others can grow to the size of a golf ball, but ganglion’s are nothing to worry about, they aren’t dangerous or harmful to you/your health.
Symptoms to look for & how to react
You would probably assume discovering a ganglion is pretty easy seen as it is a lump that has grown under the skin which fair enough is correct but still, there are other symptoms you should look out for.
The actual swelling of the ganglion can appear over a space of time or may just appear suddenly, they can grow, the can shrink, they can even go away and reappear again in the future.
Ganglion’s rarely cause any pain, only some will and this will be due to repetitive trauma, the pains that come from the ganglion’s are usually non-stop, aching and can be made worse by joint motion, other than this ganglion’s main symptom is really just the appearance; the lump under the skin.
If you have a ganglion located on your finger and if it is connected to a tendon then there will be a sense of weakness in the affected area.
The only time when you should react to your ganglion is if it is causing a degree of pain or if you have any concerns about it and feel it is worth getting checked out. By seeing a specialist they will tell you all you need to know and what is best for your ganglion, each patient will be treated differently as they will be focused on to ensure the best and most relevant procedure to help them.
If treatment is required that is when I come in, this is when ganglion removal in Cheshire is the answer to all your questions.
The Ganglion Removal procedure
From a surgeon’s point of view I can honestly say that the process of getting a ganglion cyst removed is so simple.
The procedure is short and sweet and will be over before you know it. When going under the knife to get the ganglion removed it can either be done under local or general anesthetic but before the surgery will began a line will be drawn just above the selected area and this is the line where the incision will be made to remove the cyst itself. Once fully numb, the removal will begin, the line that was previously drawn will be cut open gaining access to the actual ganglion which will then be cut out, once all of the ganglion has been removed the area will be stitched up for the skin to heal and then your ganglion removal in Cheshire procedure will be over. Easy right?
