Ganglion Cyst/Bursitis Medial Ankle Area with MRI Image Presentation
This video shows a fluid filled ganglion cyst or bursitis on the inside part of the lower ankle area. The MRI views clearly show that the mass the patient presented with was indeed fluid filled and not a dangerous tumor. The patient is using ice massage techniques three times daily to reduce the swelling, and I will consider injection with drainage if it does not respond. Unfortunately, some of these cysts need to be surgically removed.
