In brief: Very common
A ganglion on the finger is quite common.
It is benign and does not require surgey. If you find it unsightly and/or if it is painful, you can have it removed under local anesthesia. The recurrence rate after excision is less than 10%.

In brief: Yes
Not personal, but have removed several.
Surgery is straightforward. If on wrist can be done by general or pediatric surgeon. If on finger would recommend a hand specialist. Your local medical society can steer you in the right direction.
