    anyone else get these fuckers? Ive got one slightly bigger than a pea in my right wrist, and its annoying as shit. It really limits the amount of flexion I have. If you have had them before, how long did it take for it to go away?

    I've had one since I was 16. It doesn't cause any problems. Surgeon said to just leave it alone.

    I did for once!! He said that I have a main artery that runs right by it and there's more risk to try to remove it.

    I just had one of these. The doctor gave me a brace and anti-inflammatories. It healed up eventually in a few weeks. The key, unfortunately, is rest.

    I have one on my right hand side of my middle finger. It's only recently, in the last year, shown up and it's popped twice now. The first time it was only able to felt under the skin and was painful. The second time it was huge and hard (could definitely tell something was there) and now it's back but it's staying smaller, but you can still see something there. Doesn't hurt this time either.

    THey tend to go away and come back when they please for me.

    Look like some kind of flesh eating insect mutated in your body, laid eggs, and they're ready to hatch and breakthrough the skin.

    Ditto, I had one in my left wrist, I finally had it looked it when it started hurting constantly, I couldn't do any weights with my left hand, and typing was a bitch.

    He said sometimes they go away, sometimes they don't; and sometimes they could lance it and it would go away, or come right back. Resting the joint should help it go away, but if it doesn't you have to find other means (mine never went down). I had to have it removed; it was more pain than I thought it was going to be, and had to have a soft cast for several weeks.

    The surgeon said there's so much stuff crammed into your wrist in such a tight space, that when you go digging around in there you're bound to cause some pain (the cyst originated from the tendon sheath, deep in my wrist apparently). Mine turned out to have a thicker "staulk" than normal, so they said it was good that it was removed, as it would never go away on its own.

    Since it's healed (it's been maybe 5 years) I've never had any pain in my wrist, it feels just as strong as my other wrist, and I have a barely-noticeable 1.5" scar.
