Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease in which mucus cysts or ganglions are commonly seen. These can be excised surgically. Non-operative management
consists of compression (which bursts the cyst), aspiration, cortisone injection, subcutaneous de-roofing or even local resection. Dermatological interventions like liquid nitrogen therapy or a carbon dioxide laser may also be utilized.

Hope that clarifies your query. Feel free to ask back in case you have any other queries.
