Ganglion Cyst Wrist Surgery is a Safe and Successful Procedure Ganglion cyst can be a real pain. It is the most common soft-tissue tumor in the hand or the wrist. The majority of cysts appear on the back of the wrist, and they look like a bump or a mass. Ganglion cyst comes from a specific joint between two bones in the wrist. Most of the cysts happen after some sort of trauma to the joint. The cyst can cause discomfort and pain to the wrist. They can disappear on their own without the need of surgery. However, if they do not go away after a while, a surgery may be necessary. It is very important to treat the ganglion cyst as soon as possible to prevent other problems in the wrist.
