Ganglion cyst removal

I have a ganglion cyst on my left forearm. If i lift anything heavy it swells and causes discomfort. On pressing, it causes no pain. Will this be cured by aspiration or a evasive surgery will be required?

Aspiration of ganglion generally has a high recurrence rate almost 50% so if it is causing you pain and discomfort I will suggest removal but if there is not much pain then injection and aspiration can help you
