Ganglion cyst: Likely this is a ganglion cyst with the history of coming and going. It is fluid pushed out of the joint that forms a cyst. The more inflamed the joint, the more fluid is produced and the bigger the cyst. It can cause tension on nearby nerves contributing to the pain you are feeling.
