Maybe: The old slam the book technique is not used much anymore. A hand surgeon can drain it in his/her office.

Sure: Anybody can. Medieval catholic priests used to do it during mass - by means of hitting the cyst with the holy book (they were believed to be caused by some devilish act and using holy scripture was the most fitting remedy).
