Have cyst on side of pinky, taking massage therapy. Should I get it removed?

HI I was told i have a cyst on the side of my pinky. It is pushing up my vein which makes it bluging out of the side of my finger . I am going to school for massage therapy . Should i look into getting it removed? Im not sure how serious it can get that it being under my vein. Its close to my palm. I dont know if it can pop my vein or it will get worse when im using my hand to massage. Thank you very very much for your time and help.

This sounds unusual. The commonest type of cysts we see in the fingers are mutinous cysts arising from the joints when they have arthritis. Have you had an Xray or any other imaging? It is possible to get a ganglion cyst in the hand or if the swelling is in your palm it could be a tendon nodule or cyst. I think we would require more information to help you fully.
