About the Procedure
The easiest way to describe ganglion cyst is as a fluid-filled sac or as swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. The size of the cyst can vary over time, often becoming more inflamed if irritated. It is most frequently located around the wrist and on the fingers. Ganglion cyst may decrease in size over time, however, if it persists and is painful you may require excision.
