Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX

Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

How was your day?

Hope this message finds you in good health.

I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern.

the ganglion seems to be right over your wrist joint. being on the joint, any movement of the wrist causes mild inflammation in the ganglion and surrounding tendons and ligaments causing pain.

best treatment for pain is wear a wrist immobiliser belt and try to reduce the wrist movements. applying local gel and hot fomentation will also help.

if at all the pain is very unbearable, take safe anti inflammatory analgesic tablets like paracetamol,tramadol,piroxicam ,etodolac etc.

try and avoid taking pain killers as they are not good for kidneys and liver
I hope your question has been answered.

Feel free to consult me anytime for follow-up queries.

Take care,God bless.
Wish you a healthy life : )
