It's come up quite quickly. We thought it might be break so popped him to out of hours. Doc says to watch for two weeks and get it checked again then.or before if it gets bigger, sore etc.

Anyone any experience? Is it likely to be anything more serious? Or to do with fact he is ginormous!

I have a ganglion cyst on my wrist and its been there about a year. I have seen the Dr and its fine to just leave it. If you press down gently on it, it should just disappear?

It doesn't disappear but it moves around. Quite round and smooth.

If it moves around then it is v unlikely to be anything more sinister as your Dr obviously knows. Please try not to worry, it sounds completely fine.

Thanks. Good to know. Will just keep an eye then.
