Will smashing my ganglionic cyst with a book work? Somebody told me to smash it with a bible.

It might,don't do it

Extremity-upper-hand
This Is an old treatment, and the bible was typically used because it was the biggest book in the house. I typically treat dorsal ganglions or those on top of your hand with aspiration and steroid injection and those on the ventral surface or underside with surgical excision.

Dr. Tariq Niazi answered:

What causes a ganglionic cyst at the big toe joint. Can it be from bending the toe down repeatedly?

Exact cause unknown.

Ganglion_cyst
But is thought to be due to a weakness in the capsule of the joint and due to increased pressure within the joint, a Ganglion cyst develops. No, to 2nd part of your question, but I am sure it can cause it to become bigger.

Can a ganglionic cyst be caused by someone grabbing and squeezing your wrist pretty hard?

No.

Extremity-joint-wrist
Repetitive motion causes ganglion cysts, like typing, using a hammer, or driving all day every day. I even saw an anesthesiologist get one from incubating people all day. Treatment is aspiration or surgery.

Dr. Tariq Niazi answered:

If I have a ganglionic cyst the size of a pea removed from back of my big toe joint, what is recovery like?

About 3 weeks approx

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
but would depend upon the size and whether it is from the joint itself or the tendon sheath; which your surgeon would be able to tell you. The tendon sheath one should recover sooner, but again depends on its location, size and whether there were any other problems/findings during surgery. Check with the surgeon who works on you.

Dr. Andrew Hoffman answered:

Ganglionic cyst top of right foot saw Dr. Tried to drain; couldn't. Now numbness in big toe and toe next to it. Some numbness on top also. Healthy, 43?

Remove cyst

Cyst
You could see if another drainage attempt might work, but, it sounds like there is pressure on a nerve and removal of the cyst may be necessary to preserve the nerve. Speak to podiatrist or orthopedic specialist soon.
