Hygroma is a benign tumor formation located above the skin at the joints. Hygroma is a solid lump that moves freely under the skin. The tumor grows out of the joint and can be a small painless seal in the early stages. Positive aspect is that this formation never degenerates into malignant formation. The possible risk includes a significant growth, which will become an aesthetic drawback; in addition, the tumor can compress the adjacent vessels and nerve endings.

The operation takes approximately 30 minutes. The local anesthesia is used to cut hygroma out; general anesthesia is not required due to the small size of the formation and characteristics of its location. The binder is applied onto a limb and anesthetic is being injected. Then the skin incision over the tumor is being carried out and then it is removed carefully. In order to cut hygroma out completely, it is necessary to reach the source of its origin - the joint. Then wound edges are sutured and a bandage is applied.
The bandages should be changed and the suture area should be disinfected regularly during the rehabilitation period, which takes 2 weeks. You should limit the load on the limb, avoid skin injuries in the area of removal and abandon warming and steaming procedures.
