In brief: Depends on the cause

First the cause of the numbness must be determined.
A hand surgeon or orthopedic surgeon can make the diagnosis with a history and physical but may need an MRI or emg. The most common causes are carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome and a pinched nerve in the neck.

In brief: Varies

It really depends on the cause, as there are multiple potential possibilities.
Things like carpal tunnel syndrome do have a pretty simple fix, whereas conditions like a sensory neuropathy do not but can be managed with medications, consider being seen. A nerve conduction test may also be of benefit.
