Hello,

The ganglion cyst is not related to STD. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the inflammation. I also recommend to immobilize the area with a brace or splint. If the ganglion cyst continue you may need to aspirate the ganglion at a doctor's office.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
