Hi,

A dorsal ganglion is a benign swelling in the wrist (in your case) and it has a tendency to go down on its' own also. So if it is not troubling you, then ignore it else consult an orthopedic surgeon for local steroid infiltration.

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