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.

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?
