    I have a cyst for several years and it has gotten larger and I'm afraid to have it removed.
    does anyone else have this, it came out when the fibro really started up .

    I had one removed in 2005 from the palm of my hand. Where is yours?

    Dear Lin,
    I have a ganglion cyst in my right hand. When it first appeared, many years ago, it was on the ouside of the hand, below the thumb. Then it disappeared. Now it is at the top of my hand.

    It doesn't hurt, and I feel that it will either dissolve or pop back in, soon. I wouldn't risk surgery for it, since it is not dangerous. I don't know about yours. You might have a Dr. look at it. Please, just weigh it against the dangers of anesthesia, before you make a choice.

    Good luck,
    Terry

    it's on my left hand between my ring finger and middle finger, doctor's have seen it and told me to leave it alone unless it bothers me. Well it bothers me someddays and then it goes away but it's right on the vein.
    I haven't had surgery since my knee which was when the fibro came out full blown.
    I'm afraid what may happen if I have surgery and I'm also worried about around here if I can't use my hands.
    Thanks,
    Lin
