ganglion cysts don't appear on hands. Those appear on the dorsal surface of the wrist. The bumps are cynovial cysts.
Ganglion cysts can actually involve pretty much any joint in the hand or fingers. Some people call them synovial cysts. Essentially the same thing although you can't tell the difference just on location... you need histology (ganglion cysts have fibroid linings, synovial cysts have synovial linings).
