I've had a Ganglin Cyst on my hand located on the right upper portion wrist area for several years and in fact i've had surgery on it before. Unfortunantly, it came back just 3 months later and even BIGGER! So i pretty much had to deal with the wrist pain because I didn't want to have surgery again. Yesterday I had been helping lifting some objects and I accidently fell on my hand with the cyst. I immediatly felt it POP with a cool burst feeling surruounding my whole hand. Now my hand hurts even worse with tingling and numbness as we speak typing this very message. I noticed the area has not only flattened but it seems like the area spread and got wider? Can that really happen? Should I seek help again w/o surgery needed. Thanks to anybody who responds.
