Ganglion Cyst Symptoms in Humans
Ganglion cysts symptoms are marked with the following:
- Location. Ganglion cysts most often appear in areas of tendons or joints of the hands. Other locations are also commonly encountered in the ankle and on the back foot. Although, ganglion cysts can also occur in other joints in the body.
- Shape and size. Ganglion cysts are generally round or oval with a diameter of less than 2.5 cm. Some ganglion cysts may not be palpable, because they are too small. If the affected joint is used continuously with repetitive motion, the size of the ganglion cyst may become larger.
- Pain. Ganglion cysts in general do not cause pain. However, if the cyst is to suppress the innervation, symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness, or even muscle weakness may occur.
