Brief Answer: Needle should be removed. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. If the needle part is visible under the skin, you should visit a surgeon and ask him to remove it. If its not visible, and X-ray of this part should be done which will tell if there is a needle part or not. If so, it should be removed. This is not an urgent, but you should have it removed in few days. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
