Re: Ganglion

Just to add to the ganglion survey: I had one on the outer knuckle of my
left (fretting) hand middle finger, about the size of a small pea (and 
it funny how tumors and growths are so often compared to fruits and
vegetables?). This was way back in the early 1970s, when I was in my early
twenties. My family doc advised me to leave it alone, but it really
interfered with my guitar playing - really hurt when I bent the finger. So
he did the surgery, and afterwards I was left with a tiny numb spot on my
knuckle and no ganglion ever again.
