I want to ask, a year ago I had ganglion disease and I had a minor operation to remove it. Then now a bump appeared at the site of the operation yesterday. How is the solution? Are there treatments other than surgery?

Hello Anonymous,


Thank you for the question.

Ganglion cysts are formed from sacs that contain joint fluid in them. Usually, these cysts grow around the joints or tendons. The originator of this cyst is not yet known, but is thought to be related to osteoarthritis, as well as a history of injuries to the joints or tendons before.


Ganglion cysts that are small in size and do not interfere often do not require special treatment other than observation and immobilization of the surrounding area. However, if the cyst is getting bigger, causing pain, as well as movement disorders, further handling is needed, for example by:

Aspiration, namely by sucking up fluid in the cyst through a small needle
Surgery, namely by removing the cyst along with the stalk that attaches it to the joint or tendon around it

Even though they have been treated, the two procedures above both have the risk of recurring cysts. However, compared to aspiration, the risk of recurrence of the cyst is much smaller when surgery is performed. In addition to the two steps above, no alternative therapies have been found that can completely cure ganglion cysts.


Of course, this goes back to your choices and the considerations of the doctor who examined you. Therefore, if it is true that you have recurrent ganglion cysts, you should check your condition to the doctor or surgeon so that you can handle them well, okay?


I hope this helps.
