About Ganglion Cysts

Ganglion cysts are fluid-filled sacs that often develop near joints or tendons in your wrist, hand, ankle, or foot. They’re typically noncancerous and can range in size from a pea to a a golf ball. While the exact cause is unknown, they may develop due to repetitive stress or injury.

Common symptoms of ganglion cysts can include:

This is the most common symptom. The lump may feel firm and rubbery to the touch, and it might move slightly under your skin.

Depending on the location and size of the cyst, it can press on nearby tendons or nerves, restricting your ability to move the joint through its full range of motion. This can be particularly noticeable in the wrist or ankle.

Pain isn’t always present with ganglion cysts, but it can become an issue if the cyst presses on nerves or if repetitive movements irritate the surrounding tissue. The pain may be constant or come and go, and it can range from a dull ache to a sharp sensation.

In some cases, a large ganglion cyst can compress nerves, leading to tingling or numbness in the affected area. This can be a bothersome symptom and can further limit your ability to use the joint normally.

Ganglion Cyst Removal Surgery

Benefits of Ganglion Cyst Removal Surgery:

Surgery can be a great option to alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Here’s how it can benefit you:

The primary benefit of surgery is pain relief. By removing the cyst, pressure is relieved from the surrounding nerves and tissues, leading to significant pain reduction.

Once the cyst is gone, you’ll regain a wider range of motion in the affected joint. This allows you to perform daily activities and participate in hobbies without limitation.

Removing the cyst can restore normal function to the joint. This means you can grip objects more easily, bend your ankle or wrist without restriction, and use your affected limb with confidence.

While some people may not be bothered by the appearance of a ganglion cyst, others may find it cosmetically displeasing. Surgery can eliminate the visible lump, restoring a smoother and more aesthetically pleasing look to the affected area.

Ganglion Cyst Removal Procedure:

Our experienced surgeons use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to remove the ganglion cyst and surrounding tissue. Here’s a simplified breakdown of the procedure:

You will likely receive local anesthesia to numb the area around the cyst. In some cases, general anesthesia might be used if the cyst is large or in a complex location.

The surgeon will make a small incision near the base of the cyst. The size of the incision will depend on the size and location of the cyst.

The surgeon will carefully dissect the cyst from the surrounding tissue and remove it completely. This may involve removing a stalk or connection point that anchors the cyst to a joint or tendon.

Once the cyst is removed, the surgeon will close the incision with stitches or surgical glue.

Ganglion Cyst Removal Recovery:

Recovery after ganglion cyst removal surgery is typically quick and manageable. It’s important to note that recovery timelines can vary depending on the individual and the complexity of the surgery. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions to ensure a smooth healing process. Here’s what you can expect:

You may experience some discomfort or soreness after surgery, which can be managed with medication.

The surgical site will be bandaged for protection and support. You may be instructed to keep the bandage dry for a certain period.

Depending on the location and severity of the cyst, physical therapy might be recommended to help restore full range of motion and strength to the affected joint.

Most people can return to light activities within a few days after surgery. Gradually, with your doctor’s approval, you can resume your normal daily activities and exercise routines.
