Acupuncture Treatment of Ganglion Cyst


Chief Complaint: 1x1x1x inch. right wrist lump

Western Diagnosis: Ganglion cyst

Medical History: Right handed computer/mouse user

Questioning exam: Cosmetic reasons:[/b] looked prominent though painless.

OM Diagnosis: Phlegm accumulation based on local Qi and blood stagnation

Treatment Principle: Local needling

Point Prescription: Looking up medical acupuncture and general acupuncture websites I could not find any particularly relevant information

Herbal Formula: N/A

Lifestyle Prescription: Wrist support, exercise

Results: After one treatment, basically my idea was just to “puncture” the cyst and using direct moxa on site, within 24 hours the cyst fluid leaked out and the prominent, disfiguring lump disappeared.

I had to repeat the very same treatment a couple of times later when the lump was just about showing gain and it has not returned as of today.
