Abstract

The most common soft tissue bulge in the hand and wrist is a ganglion cyst. Any age group can develop ganglion cysts, although they are seen more frequently in those in their 20s to 40s. Aside from enlargement, most ganglion cysts are painless. The majority of patients sought guidance and therapy because they felt self-conscious about their ganglion's appearance or were frightened that it was a cancerous growth. The management options of ganglion cyst range from reassurance and nonsurgical therapies to surgical removal. To review and evaluate the management options that were presented in the published literature. PubMed database was used for articles selection, and the following keys were used in the mesh ((“ganglion cyst"[Mesh]) AND (“management”[Mesh]) OR (“surgery"[Mesh])). Nonsurgical treatments are associated with a relatively high failure rate and about half of the ganglions in general resolved spontaneously. Therefore, a conservative approach to ganglions is frequently considered useless but the complications, on the other hand, were found to be modest. Nevertheless, surgical excision is currently widely regarded as the most successful treatment method and is considered the gold standard approach.
