Hi,

Really you need to consult the general surgeon for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. As nobody diagnosed properly, you should consult the hand surgeon. Do not wait, consult and get the proper treatment.. it may be surgical removal of cyst under local anaesthesia.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
