In brief: Same

Same as you would a respected ganglion.
Gradual return to normal function with appropriate protection.

In brief: Surgery

If a ganglion cyst returns after an aspiration and does not cause any symptoms you have the option of leaving it alone.
If it does continue to cause symptoms you can consider surgical removal which is a outpatient procedure with a relatively quick recovery.
