Crap! TIA on my part. What do you call it when there's a cyst on the extensor tendon in the hand. The ones that they inject with steroids? Fast! Once the xray is back (which will be normal) I've gotta dispo her.

SDN. Your source for quick clinical curbside consults. Is that considered asking for medical advice?

Since I saw one last week, and didn't chime in on this thread, you will be receiving my bill shortly. Enjoy the wet, sloppy snow on the LV strip, and I shall be outside in sunny 70 degree SC warmth.

So, are we to assume that someone came to your ER complaining of the painless ganglion cyst thats been sitting there for the last 6 months?
