Ganglion Cyst (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care
Whether you have symptoms or not, a ganglion cyst can benefit from medical evaluation. Your doctor can be sure that you have a ganglion cyst, keep you from worrying, and help decide on the best treatment plan for you.
A ganglion cyst does not need to have emergency treatment unless you have significant trauma. A routine check by either your primary doctor or a specialist in bones and joints (an orthopedist) should be enough.
