Thanks for writing to us.
The protrusion that you have described is likely to be due to an inflammation in the area causing arthritis. You can take oral anti inflammatory medicines and pain killers for symptomatic relief. Doing a hot fomentation in the area will also be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
