Should I Get Surgery Or A Second Aspiration For My Ganglion Cyst
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
I have a huge ganglion cyst on the top, right side of my right knee. After four or five aspirations. We finally decided on surgery. Well, I have had it aspirated twice since then (surgery was done in april 2012). The last aspiration removed 50cc of fl
No limit but....: There is no set number of times that a ganglion can be aspirated. Sometimes they go away with one and sometimes they persist. A persistent ganglion could be an indicator of a rate tumor. It is a good idea to have the fluid expressed from the ganglion examined by a pathologist to see if all the cells in the fluid are clean and healthy. I find it helps to inject a little corticosteroid into the gang. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have a dorsal ganglion cyst on my wrist..It is not painful but is it safe to get removed? Any complications/scaring wit surgery for this?
Try aspiration first: Ganglions are common benign cysts in the hand/wrist. You should have a doctor exam to confirm. I tell my patients who have pain-free cysts to monitor them. Cysts can go away on their own. If they becomes much larger, painful, or limit function, we can perform an aspiration procedure in the office (needle drainage). Surgery is successful for removal the majority of the time with few complications. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a radial volar ganglion cyst and im considering surgery.I play percussion and its my life!if i get it removed will it be costly to my playing?!
Treatment: Volar radial wrist ganglions should not be aspirated secondary to the potential for radial artery injury. With surgery and proper post operative care recurrence is 4-5 %, without proper post op care recurrence has been reported to be closer to 18%. Aspiration is only appropriate for dorsal wrist ganglions and success rate is poor maybe 20 - 30% at best. Surgery should not effect your playing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a recurring ganglion cyst on my left foot, 3 surgeries and it is back again. Is there any tests or procedures recommended to get rid of this?
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
Another option: Arthroscopic-assisted ganglion excision is minimally invasive, relatively painless, and has a lower reported recurrence rate. Typically performed under general anethesia, and through small portals, the ganglion stalk can be visualized and excised with precision instrumentation. The cyst can then be decompressed through an accessory portal. Local anesthesia is placed over the portal sites. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
