June 21st - Funky Finger
21-JUN-2004 Michael Todd Thorpe

June 21st - Funky Finger

Nope, it's not a Photoshop trick.
I call it my Funky Finger. And if I give you the Finger, you know it!

The doctor says it's a ganglion cyst.
They usually develop where a joint has been damaged.
Apparently I hurt this finger, but I can't remember doing so!
It can be removed but 9 times out of 10 it returns.
It just has to run it's course.

So, beware of the Funky Finger!

PS:unsharp mask.

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel

Hearsay of hearsay, I'd never trust anyone from the internet telling me to smash any part of my anatomy for any reason. BUT My science teacher used to get them on the back of his wrists, and the doctor would smash them with a book.

I had one, though much smaller, on my wrist bone. I'd push on it and push on it and then one day, 'Bloop!', it just sunk into my wrist and disappeared. It scared me for a second!

Nice shot! rumor has it that if you smash these cysts again they will go away! Never tried it myself or seen it but have heard it works.... Please check with your DR. before trying! :)

Man, looks like there's an alien in there...Nice, crisp photo by the way!

Ew, looks weird but yet funky indeed hehehe.
I don't like things growing inside of me. I had 'my alien thing' in my nose removed yesterday. I'm glad it's gone.
