Need to remove it: It could be any number of diagnoses, including a synovial (join-derived) cyst, a non-synovial (hair follicle) cyst, lipoma (a fatty growth, but rather uncommon on the hands), or even an abscess (a localized infection). I would remove this growth. A dermatologist/dermatologic surgeon or hand surgeon can do this procedure and once it is removed and biopsied you will know the diagnosis as well. ...Read more

On the muscle of my neck on lefted hand side I got a lump pop out of my muscle it hard been there for 4days now what could it be

It could be a lymph node that is enlarged due to infection, but if it is really from the muscle, and your neck is stiff or sore, then some heat and massage, stretching etc should help to clear the 'knot'. If more appear & continue see your doctor. ...Read more
