Hi Bellablot I have this. For some reason I have what is called synovial cysts. They, for me, usually last for approximately a year. They hurt a lot, for me, they leave bony scarring and always come back. I got my first 1 on the back of my right hand when I was about 10. I am 47 now and I still have that 1 come up and go down. The 1 on my left wrist is still giving me lots of trouble. Another 1 has left bad scarring on the middle finger on my right hand palm side. I do have many cysts in my breasts, my face cheeks lol but the 1 that is scaring me is a new 1 on my neck. I have a big issue with Doctors and have only seen 1 in the last 3 years but am trying to pluck up the courage to get it looked into. Having just read this back I sound like a right lumpy freak but the ones on my face are on the insides and unless I show the others people don't even notice them. If yours are the same then they are not nice but they are nothing to worry about. Good Luck x
