I have been to my GP twice and he both splinted and gave me anti-inflamitories (which made my dizzy and naucious) and it's still very painful after a couple of weeks of this "theropy". My GP doesn't do "invastive treatment" for these cysts. Any suggestions of which direction of a specialist to go to. It's on the inside of my left wrist and very painful.

  • That's too bad; he doesn't have to live with it. You need a surgeon; you can see if there is a hand surgeon near you or a general surgeon or an orthopaedic & sports medicine surgeon. I had a ganglion years ago and could not do anything with my left hand. Since surgery, it has been totally fine and never returned.
