Ganglion on back of wrist. Growing in size. Pain while moving wrist. Surgery required?

Hello Doctor, my name is sagar and I am from bangalore. I have ganglion on back of my wrist from past one year and it has grown in size noticeably. All this days I had no pain or problem in movement of my wrist, but from today morning i am feeling little pain on moving my wrist. Should I still wait so that it disappears, or shall I get it operated.?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Recently,a drug has come in injection form which can be injected into the Ganglion and reduce it.
It does not disappear on its own.
If the drug is not available in your area,get it removed by Surgeon.
Wish you speedy recovery.
