LIPOMA - Lipomas are small, oval-shaped masses of tissues that are commonly found on the neck, shoulders, forearms, arms, and thighs. These fat cell nodules are benign and painless. They typically do not have cancer, and they grow slowly.
A GANGLION CYST is a little fluid sac that develops over a joint or tendon. A thick, viscous substance resembles jelly inside the cysts. Bible cysts are another name for them, and they frequently appear on the back of the hand at the wrist joint, the fingertips, the knee, the ankle, the top of the foot, etc.
Lipomas can occur anywhere in the body, usually, they can be seen on:
Characteristics of Ganglion cysts are:
Location - The tendons or joints of the hands or wrists are where ganglion cysts most frequently form. The ankles and feet are the next most typical areas. These cysts often develop close to other joints.
Size and shape - Round or oval ganglion cysts are common. Too small to feel are some. A cyst's size can alter, frequently growing bigger over time with joint movement.
Pain - Ganglion cysts typically cause no pain. However, a cyst might result in discomfort, tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness if it pushes on a nerve or other structures.
The most effective treatment for lipoma is surgery. To remove the fatty tissues, the doctor performs a minor excision during the treatment. The possibility of a lipoma recurrence is reduced by this minimally invasive surgery, which leaves no visible scars on the body.
An outpatient surgery known as a ganglionectomy is used to remove ganglion cysts. It usually takes two to six weeks to fully recover. Cyst recurrence is decreased when removed surgically.
Ganglion cysts are more likely to form in people with osteoarthritis, joint damage, and tendon injuries.
A ganglion cyst is typically referred to as a bulge or bump on your wrist, finger, or foot. The cyst may resemble a bubble as it lies beneath the skin's surface.
Ganglion cysts do not pose a risk. They are not malignant and are benign lumps that will not spread to other parts of the body.
Lipomas typically feel like they can be moved a little beneath the skin, are soft and squeezy, and generally, extend a little deeper into the skin.
Ganglion cysts have a rubbery feel under the skin and frequently contain drainage holes where thick, white material is discharged.
These non-cancerous lumps develop on the tendons or joints of the wrists or hands where ganglion cysts most frequently develop as lumps. They can also develop in the feet and ankles. Usually circular or oval, ganglion cysts have a jelly-like fluid inside.
Lipomas can only be treated surgically, and if left untreated, the tumors will not disappear. A minimally invasive procedure is the best treatment to remove Lipomas. Being an outpatient procedure, the patient can go home the same day and needs no hospital stay.
