Treatment of ganglion cysts. In some cases the ganglion cyst or cysts may just be monitored by a podiatric physician. If there is pain associated with the cyst especially when walking shoe modifications can be made to accommodate the cyst to offload pressure and friction and alleviate pain. Aspiration of the fluid and injection of a steroid has also been successful in some cases to dissolve the cyst. If all other treatments fail surgery may be needed to remove the cyst. However, in some cases no matter what the treatment the ganglion cyst may return.
