I have a deformity(almost like a bone is dislocated)on my wrist that is slightly painful, is it going to go away or should i see a doctor?

Hard to say: Your description is too vague to understand what you are describing. If this interferes with the way your wrist functions & is painful it is reasonable to have it evaluated. There are 8 bones in the wrist & they can be broken or bruised. Maintaining future function may require a timely treatment.
