Hi ,

Thanks for the query.

I completely understand your concern and I hope I am able to help you for the same.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

You seem to have developed either a lipoma or a bony swelling of the scaphoid.

You should get yourself assessed by a surgeon of orthopedic doctor soon.
Lipomas are usually harmless swellings though, but its differentiation is necessary.

Painful lipomas need surgical removal.

Take care

Wishing you speedy recovery
