It isn’t very visible

This is likely to go away on its own.

Do not touch it recurrently or assess the size.

You may consider taking over the counter multivitamin and vitamin C for 10-15 days.

There is nothing worrisome.

Thank you doctor. As i say it hasn't got worse and doesn't hurt at all, is it a mucous cyst?

You are very welcome.

In all likelihood, it is a mucous cyst.

Wishing you a speedy resolution and all the very best in life.
