Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

it is not painful
Ok.You may want to look up ganglion cyst, and see if your issue matches up with this.Ganglion cysts can be commonly seen on the wrist area. Generally firm and not moveable like a lipoma would be.
If it’s painful, your doctor can drain it. But it will often improve on its own.

Yeah I do search about it on internat it look like though can it goes by itself
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Okay but I am still worried about it because how long does it take to go away, whether it is any fracture of bone or swelling of vein
This is not a fracture of the bone, or swelling up a vein. This can go away on its own within weeks or maybe months, but if it is bothering you, have your doctor evaluate it.
