How Can I Tell if My Cyst Will Return?

By    |   Thursday, 28 Feb 2013 05:44 PM

Question: I recently had a ganglion cyst aspirated. How likely is it that it will return? If it does what do I do next?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
 
Ganglion cyst aspiration does not make it disappear. But many ganglion cysts go away by themselves.
 
The aspiration has probably made it less noticeable, and hopefully it is in the process of disappearing by itself for you. Most of them are resistant to aspiration, so you are fortunate.

Localized cortisone injection often helps them clear up quickly without surgical intervention.
