Whilst ganglia as a spontaneous event are extremely common in the young, a cause for a ganglion should always be established in the middle aged and elderly.  These are often secondary to degenerative changes in the carpus. It is also important to confirm the diagnosis for occasionally these can be confused with rare and serious sarcomas.
