I had one in my wrist around the tendons when I was about 22 years old,it got to where I couldn't hardly use my hand very well? So I went to the Doctors and was told I would need it surgically removed.
The week before surgery I was helping a friend clean his wood furnace room when a spider climbed on my hand,out of reaction to the spider I flung it off my hand which popped really loud and hurt like a son of gun!! Never had another problem with it and bypassed the surgery!
I'm not sayin' i'm a doctor lol,or what I did will work for you,just passing my own experience along.
I get ganglion cycsts on my knuckles. They pop and go away with enough force. They hurt like a biotch when you pop em, but it is only temporary.
Yep, this is the answer, in my opinion. My "son" Eric had a ganglion cyst. We would smash it and once it came back and we smashed it again. Sometimes they have to be surgically removed if the 'pocket' keeps filling again. But most of the time smashing it gets rid of it.

Had one when I was 15. Was able to pop it while holding a nail for my dad. Funny, the man could pop his plugs out of a target at 300 yards with an M16, but he could never hit the same spot twice when driving a nail into a board. As far as the pain goes, I've been through worse. Then again, I have a VERY high pain tolerance.
Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reason, or to do the wrong thing for the right reason? If you do the wrong thing for the right reason, is it still the wrong thing?
