Hello and welcome to HCM

Is the swelling that you got couple of years back proven as ganglion cyst histopathologically?
A swelling on the wrist can be a ganglion cyst or a simple cyst.
Ganglion cyst is known to recur and it causes discomfort and pain.
Management of cyst is surgical removal.
So, consult your doctor for its removal.

Thanks and take care
