“Ganglion Cyst Surgery” BEWARE Of The Risks
Even after intrusive painful ganglion cyst surgery and or aspiration, (click here) in many cases the ganglion cyst will grow back. According to “National Library of Med” (Details)
For almost one out of two ganglion cysts, the ganglion surgery (ganglionectomy) is performed.
According to Spire Harpenden Hospital if you are having the operation under local anesthesia, your surgeon will usually need to wait at least 20 minutes for the anesthetic to take effect before starting the operation. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, a cut is made over the ganglion. It is removed from the joint or tendon lining without disturbing the surrounding structures. Where a ganglion is tricky to remove, the cut will be larger than the size of the lump. At the end of the operation, the cut is closed with stitches.
The Ganglion Cyst Operation
Usually lasts about 30 minutes, however, all surgery carries an element of risk. Complications specific to removal of ganglion cysts are as follows: excessive swelling, delayed healing and damage to surrounding skin nerves.

Studies have shown that the rate of recurrence after puncture and aspiration is greater than 50% for cysts in most locations. (Click Here) Ganglion’s of the hand and wrist. By Thornburg LE
Surgical operation of the ganglion cysts; nine-year retrospective study of recurrence and patient satisfaction
A retrospective review was performed on 152 consecutive patients undergoing surgical excision of dorsal and volar wrist ganglia between January 1998 and March 2005. Surgery was performed at The Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust by both junior and senior surgeons in the specialties of Orthopedic, General and Plastic Surgery. The overall recurrence rate following excision of all wrist ganglia in this series was 41.8%. When looking just at volar ganglia, the risk of recurrence is higher at 46.8%. Should the ganglion recur, the risk of developing a moderate to severely tender scar is 34.6%. On direct questioning of this recurrence group, 25 of the 49 were not satisfied with the treatment and 19 would not have had the surgery if given the choice again.
- Stop Smoking
- Lose weight, if you are overweight
- If you have problems with your blood pressure, heart or lungs, then your GP will need to check to make sure that these are under control and it is safe for you to have an operation.
- If you are taking the contraceptive pill, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or anticoagulants (blood thinners), make sure that your GP and surgeon are aware of this. Take any medication in with you on the day of your operation.
Risks of the Ganglion Cyst Surgery
- Localized prolonged anesthesia or paresthesia ( pricking, or numbness of a person’s skin due to infection)
- Hematoma (collection of blood outside the blood vessels, usually in liquid form within the tissue; excessive fluid pressure in a confined cavity, and severing of nerves & support tissue during injection)
- Systemic reactions such as depressed CNS ( part of the nervous system syndrome) allergic reaction, vasovagal episode ( which is the most common type of fainting)
- Cyanosis (appearance of a blue or purple coloration of the skin or mucous membranes due to the tissues near the skin surface being low on oxygen, due to local anesthetic toxicity)
- Lack of anesthetic effect due to infectious pus such as an abscess ( a collection of pus that has accumulated within a tissue because of foreign materials – e.g., splinters, injecting needles)
The affected area is elevated for up to two days to help reduce swelling. You may experience discomfort, swelling and tenderness for two to six weeks. You will need to change your bandages and dressings periodically. If the cyst was on your hand or wrist area, you will need to wear a splint or a brace to immobilize the area and minimize postoperative pain. As the incision heals, it is important to watch for signs of infection, including redness, swelling or discharge. Usually, physical therapy is not necessary after ganglion cyst removal. But if you have new problems with joint stiffness, therapy may help you regain strength in your hand, wrist or foot. Though rare, injury to nerves, blood vessels or tendons may occur. These could result in weakness, numbness or restricted motion. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that a ganglion cyst won’t recur, even after surgery.
There is a lack of consensus over the percentage of ganglion cysts that return after surgery, but according to medical research it’s an average of 46%. Even with surgery there are no guarantees. (Details)
