I have recently had surgery removing a ganglion cyst from the middle of my tibia. They were unsure of what it was from all the test including a bone biopsy. They watched it for a little over a year. I have been seeing an orthopedic oncologist, The sugery was done and I was told it was a ganglion cyst....I have not been able to find out any information on the web about this type being located in the bone. Has anyone ever heard of this or have any information. I was also told it could grow back again and then I would have to have it removed again. By the way the cyst was located inside the middle of the tibia plateu. Thank you Cheryl
