Has anyone else had one? I had one on my wrist and had it removed privately so as not to go through my GP. Does anyone know if they can stop you getting in the army. I had it removed about 1 month ago and it hasnt reaccured yet,,,tho may do! Anyone else have a ganglion problem??? lol

Why would you want to hide a ganglion from your GP?

Don't worry, the army won't care as long as you have full use of the wrist.

Had one on my right wrist about 25 years ago. The very nice people at the Duchess of Kent's military hospital in Catterick removed it for me. I thought it would be an in, scrape, and out job but I ended up ther for three days. Couldn't complain, marvelous people. Get it seen to, it will only continue to cause trouble. Not so bad if it's "watch hand" but if it's the other!!!

Have also had one on my wrist for many years and it affects me, though not considerably, from time to time. Never had it removed. The MO told me about the old method of thumping it with a Bible, but they don't do that anymore apparently.

It's just something I have learned to live with, like I say it has never had a really detrimental effect on me, just like a badly sprained wrist from time to time. Maybe mine is not as severe as some people get? I don't know..
