Ganglion Cysts Treatment
Non-cancerous, fluid-filled cysts, Ganglion Cysts form over joints or tendons, most commonly at the wrist. Though some Ganglion cysts produce no symptoms, other than their appearance, they can cause numbness or aching, and at times may cause weakness in the hand.
Often, no treatment is needed. However, if the cyst or cysts cause pain or hinder hand movement, several treatment options are available, including:
- Aspiration: performed under local anesthetic to drain fluid from the cyst.
- Surgery: to remove cysts which cause excessive pain or greatly impede movement.
