Is it common to have them in your wrist joint? I know I have two cyst in my
knuckles, but they don't have fluid like this, and it really is effecting the use
of my hand.
Hello and welcome,I am sorry that your follow up question was unanswered for long.Your symptoms should be also looked for compound palmar ganglion (which is due to chronic mycobacterial infection), apart from a wrist ganglion. The usual investigation to assess it are;1) An ultrasound2) An MRI3) An aspiration of the swelling.The ganglion and compound palmar ganglion are not uncommon conditions and may require surgery to remove it. Just an aspiration by a wide bore needle can be done; though there is a chance of recurrence.I am online, so you may ask any follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
