Smashing the cyst with a heavy book (ie. bible)

Believe it or not but this was once the recommended way to remove a ganglion cyst.The largest book in many homes was the bible and the bible was used to smash the ganglion cyst and break it.The synovial fluid is then dispursed into the surrounding area.It won’t get rid of the ganglion cyst shell so eventually, the synovial fluid will accumulate again in the same location.

We do not recommend this treatment as it may cause damage to the surrounding tissue and bad bruising.

This massage that stimulates the cyst (such as friction) can be very irritating and could exacerbate fluid production in the sac.
