Ganglion masses, also known as cysts, can be a source of discomfort and pain for individuals. Fortunately, cyst removal surgery provides an effective treatment option. Most cyst removal surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis, making it a convenient option for many patients.
During the procedure, the cyst is carefully dissected from the surrounding soft tissues and removed. The recovery period varies depending on the location of the ganglion and the extent of dissection required during surgery. In some cases, patients may require a splint or below-the-knee cast after the procedure. The surgeon may also recommend the use of crutches for several days to up to three weeks. This level of protection is particularly necessary if the ganglion is close to the ankle joint.
It is important to note that like with any surgery, there are potential complications that may arise from cyst removal. These complications may include infection, excessive swelling, and nerve damage.
