Our expert says:
No it is not a kind of artritis. A ganglion is a little "balloon" that forms in the sheath of the muscles of the hand due to a weak spot. As your fingers move, fluid pumps into the balloon and causes pressure on surrounding nerves and muscles and joints, causing pain. The only way to get rid of it is to have it operated and repaired.
It is not dangerous - just uncomfortable.
