The answer

Thank you for your question and let me start off by expressing my wishes of a quick recovery. Without further examination it is impossible to say what might be the cause of this lump.

You can develop small lumps and bumps anywhere on the skin. This may be a cyst or a ganglion, or something else entirely. Our recommendation is that you book an appointment with your General Practitioner so that an accurate diagnosis can be made.
