Without : Without seeing the lesion in question, i can say there is a possibility you are dealing with a ganglion cyst. A ganglion cyst is a tumor or swelling on a tendon or on top of a joint. It is commonly found on the hands ( between the fingers or at the base of the palm and finger). Depending on the size, cysts may feel firm or spongy. A routine check by either your primary doctor or an orthopedist is in order to actually make a diagnosis. If this is in fact the problem then a treatment plan can be etablished, which may include aspiration of the cyst. This tends to help resolve the problem in greater a 3/4 of cases. If it is not a ganglion cyst then your doctor should be able to provide a diagnosis based on his/her findings. Good luck to you. ...Read more

No: What you described is not likely to harm your health, limb or life. It may even disappear on its own. If your doctor is not concerned, just wait and watch. If it becomes troublesome, it could be removed if and when necessary. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
