Effort: The ganglion is connected to the synovial space between the small bones of the wrist. The more work that the wrist is doing can express more synovial fluid into the ganglion. When at rest it can return to the space and the ganglion appear smaller. I would suspect that the communication between ganglion and wrist is moderate rather than small. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A ganglion cyst that was popped in my hand 3 months ago is back. What is te next course of treatment?
Surgery: Drainage of a ganglion cyst tends to have a pretty high rate of recurrence. If the cyst is causing symptoms such as pain or discomfort, I think surgery is the way to go. It's a fairly minor procedure that can be done in less than an hour as an outpatient procedure. Recurrence rates are much lower after surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

MRI with contrast: It sounds like the surgeon did not completely remove the 'stalk' (from where the ganglion originated). Thus you were more prone to recurrence. Ganglion cysts are notorious for recurrence because oftentimes you cannot completely discern its origin. I recommend an MRI with contrast to accurately evaluate the extent and originationpart of the foot (joint or tendon) of the ganglion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
