Suggest home remedies for the treatment of a ganglion cyst

I have a ganglion cyst. Have had it many years ago. Once aspirated and one other time went away on its own. This time it is bigger and seems to be growing. Hoped that stretching the wrist joint would open up the area and allow the fluid to drain back into the joint. Are there any other home treatments to try before I go to the doctor?

Hi there I just found out I have an intraosseous cyst 10mm located on my tibial plateau. The pain started 1 month ago during a training run and has not gotten any better. The pain is fine at rest but during walking or any activity I am in extreme pain. What are the treatment options? Thank you
