Ganglion Cyst on the Dorsum of the Wrist of Ana Treated by Needle Aspiration

AL came to me to have the ganglion cyst on the dorsum of her right wrist aspirated today.

She asked me to have pictures taken on the needle aspiration procedure and findings and shared them on Facebook.   Here they are, AL.

Thank you, AL, for supporting my advocacy to inform the public on options for treatment.

Before the aspiration – 2 cm ganglion cyst on the back of her right wrist.

On insertion of the needle, before aspirating, still with the bulge.

Within one second of aspiration, no more bulge.
