My doctor and I have been keeping a close eye on my wrist ganglion. It looks like the ganglion is getting bigger. What's the next step to get rid of this thing?

Beyond observation, closed rupture with multiple needle punctures is another nonsurgical treatment option for dorsal wrist ganglions. In this procedure, the cyst wall is punctured with a needle, and anti-inflammatory and numbing drugs are injected into the cyst. This treatment can shrink the cyst and alleviate symptoms. However, the ganglion is likely to reappear.
