What are the current treatments for Ganglion Cyst?
Ganglion cysts may resolve on their own or require treatment. The treatment for a ganglion cyst depends on its size and whether it is causing pain or affecting joint movement. If there are no symptoms, no treatment may be needed. If the ganglion cyst is causing symptoms, then it may be treated conservatively with immobilization using a brace or splint to shrink the cyst or aspiration using a needed to drain fluid from the cyst. Surgical excision is usually the preferred treatment for symptomatic ganglion cysts because the cysts may otherwise recur.
