Permanent removal of a Ganglion cyst from the foot (benign soft-tissue tumor filled with jelly like fluid) can be done with a procedure known as Ganglionectomy. A Ganglion cysts often show up on the feet, but occasionally show up in other parts of the body.
There are two ways to remove a Ganglion cyst - one involving draining the fluid from the cyst and injecting steroids into the cyst itself. If this treatment method fails then the cyst will need to be removed with surgery.
When Ganglion Cysts get under the skin, which is in most cases or are connected to soft tissue then surgery is probably warranted.
