    Haven't been lifting for a little over a week now.

    Doctor said the cyst is around a nerve that controls my ring finger and pinky and some of my palm in my left hand and causes it to tingle from time to time.

    He didn't really say to NOT work out but it feels like my forearm is going to split in half.

    Any suggestions on a temporary routine until I remove the cyst?

    Injections of Kenalog/5-FU and/or corisone or a similar steroid can cause it to atrophy.

    well i don't know about the doctor but many times lifters and athletes develop facia under the muscle which causes it to buldge out. its commonly mistaken for a cyst though. i would just make sure although it shouldn't be a problem as long as it doesn't hurt.

    Who do I go see for these kind of symptoms?

    I just read up on fascia's and it might be it vs. a cyst.

    Sports doctors?

    yea most sports doctors would be able to tell you. its somewhat common so i wouldn't get frightened. i'd just find a good sports doctor around.

    So I'm assuming it's repairable? It feels like my forearm is going to split in two when I lift.

    I read up on it and it says a ganglionic cyst only occurs near the wrist or the back of the hand and places on the leg.

    Mine is in my forearm near the elbow.



    And no pics as I have not taken any.
