Ganglion Cyst on back of hand

I have had a ganglion cyst on the back of my left hand for several years. I've had it aspirated once, but it came back. I recently started eating a greatly increased amount of vegetables and fruit and much much less meat and fish and dairy. I noticed after about a month the cyst started decreasing in size and nearly went away, which made me very happy.

However, a few weeks ago, the cyst returned and now it's the same as before -- hard and round. It is painless, thank goodness. I continue to eat the same healthy diet of lots of vegetables and fruit, much less animal products.

I am right handed, so it doesn't appear to come from the stress of typing on the computer -- which I do all day.

I'm hoping for some remedy to reduce the cyst permanently.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
you can take ruta 30c thrice daily for two days then stop, though more information is needed like if pains, pain sensations, cravings and some details on behavior/personality(wrote as much as you can on anything either your disease or mental issues) etc but anyway ruta can be tried.
if it is in pill form just take 4-6 pills on tongue, let it dissolve. if remedy is liquid form just 2-3 drops in a glass of water, stir take a teaspoon from that glass as a dose.
Report after a week.
