Not recommended: Ganglion cysts are noncancerous lumps that most commonly develop along the tendons or joints of your wrists or hands. These cysts do not need treatment unless they are painful and persistent. Many of them will resolve with rest. While there are accounts of patients bursting these cysts with a heavy object, there is also the possibility of aggravating the cyst. If necessary, see a hand surgeon.
