Hope it worked!
If it's causing pain, it sounds as if it may be too big or in too difficult a spot for the eraser method; be careful if you try it. May be worth getting it removed by your doctor, then watching the site and bandaging if it starts to form again ;) Good luck, pain is no good!
Oh, the pain doesn't sound good - lots of nerves there. I had a small cyst hidden in my thumb joint, so very difficult to access. I had it removed surgically (took the dr a while to find it) and that worked, though it took many months to heal the surgery wound - hope the surgery is successful for you.
Wow, glad that worked for you - thanks for sharing! I wouldn't be brave enough to cut into the cyst (my dr made sure my tetanus shot was updated before he used a sterile needle to drain it). Mine still hasn't returned after all these years, but I do keep an eye on it and would do the bandaging method if it started to form again; hope yours is fixed for good!
If it's bigger than the one in the picture I would think there's too much fluid build-up to go back into the surrounding tissue easily - you'd have to bandage it for a while to help it to go down a bit... but I'm not any kind of expert. I'd be going to a doctor to get it drained and then keep an eye on the area to see if it starts to come back, then using the "eraser pressure" method to stop it growing again. Good luck!
Hi, I think that would be too large to compress; better get it drained by a doctor and then keep an eye on it in case it starts to re-occur. I'd always recommend getting medical advice if unsure.
I'm sorry but I can't help you with iPhones. I hope you find some good advice online :)
Haha thanks :)
Thanks for your feedback - good to know that the method is OK'd by professionals :) Hope your treatment works well!
Hi Judy, I'm sorry I didn't reply earlier - just saw your post. I hope you've managed to get some solution for your cyst! I would always recommend getting proper medical advice of there's any likely risk - and being on an artery sounds as if you would have to be very careful applying pressure. Good luck :)
Your wrist brace idea is very clever - whatever works to apply steady pressure across the cyst. I hope it works for you, as it sounds pretty far gone and it's probably a 'weak' area now. If you do have to get it drained, it could be worth keeping an eye on it and bandaging at night (or using your brace) when you see signs of it re-appearing, to discourage it from forming ;)
Wow, I'm so pleased it worked for you, Velinda! Thanks for sharing your success and photo :)
Nice work. I'd recommend using a dark pot to absorb the heat too ;)
You're welcome! I'm so glad it helped you, and I hope you manage to get rid of the cyst altogether :)

Oh, I really hope it works for you and that you get some relief! Perhaps elevate your foot when you can to help the fluid drain away? Good luck!
Thanks, Lextone.... I was wondering too :)
Good luck! If it's been there a while, it may take several goes to reverse the leakage and heal the surrounding tissues. Hope it works for you :)
You may need to bandage it for a few nights until the tissue surrounding the ganglion settles back into place, otherwise the sac will still be there and inclined to re-fill with fluid. I was warned that they often re-occur (I guess there's a weakness in the tissue in the first place, so fluid can seep in). Hope you manage to get it under control - they're a small thing but surprisingly annoying!
Great! I'm so pleased it worked well for you :)
Sorry it's not working for you... I'd give my hand a rest if I were you; maybe just bandage at night without the eraser, and if your cyst isn't draining away see a doctor about getting it drained. Good luck!
Yes, great advice, thanks... pulling forward is a big help, as is working out the turning arc before starting (I even mark it with witches' hats if there are no handy reference points or if there are obstacles to avoid).
I'm glad you're getting a professional to look at it- sounds nasty if you've already been smashing it (OUCH!) and it's gone hard. Hope you get it sorted!
I'd still be inclined to try bandaging overnight for a while to see if it works, especially if it's not too big yet, and I guess it's worth trying the wrist split too - both non-invasive, cheap and should be harmless if you don't overdo it - but you may need to seek medical opinion as it sounds as if it's a big problem for you. Good luck, and let us know how you go :)
Glad it seems to be working for you! Hope you have further success :)
You're lucky to have a physician in the family- great that you got good treatment and as you say by someone qualified. Thank you for the note that the pressure/bandage should only be used if the cyst isn't too full of fluid- that's worth remembering :)

Interesting - thanks for sharing, and for the pic. Hope it works for you :)
Hi Raffy, thank you for taking the time to share your experiences! Your cyst sounds a real nuisance,but I wouldn't be too hard on yourself - we all develop weaknesses in our bodies as we age, but I agree that exercise can help, especially with circulation, which may help to drain away the fluid that collects in cysts.I'd be inclined to watch the problem spot and, if you see the swelling begin again, you could try bandaging it at night to see if it helps to stop it developing... also try keeping your foot up when you can to help stop the liquid collecting in your feet.... but that's just my opinion and I'm certainly not a doctor- don't do anything that could be harmful without medical advice, of course.Good luck- I'll be keen to hear how you go!
