Diagnosis & Investigations
Ganglion cysts are usually diagnosed by talking through your symptoms with your doctor. They will be able to examine the cyst, ensuring that the shape and location is consistent with what you expect. Larger cysts may force doctors to perform additional testing to rule out disorders like synovitis. An ultrasound scan often shows the origin and the location of the cyst.
