You probably need some kind of surgery would be my guess. But I am just a fellow kneesufferer like you.
The ganglion is probably caused by meniscus tears and once they are taken care of the ganglion will disappear.

Surgery 6 times left knee torn meniscus, RSDS,chondromalacia, nervdamage cause constant nervpain,chronic inflamm.
Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.
