It is a ganglion cyst and wrist is the most common site for it to occur. If it is a small lump and you have no symptoms you can leave it as such. If you have concern/symptoms you can get it removed by a small surgery under local anaesthesia/regional anaesthesia. Not a major surgery so no need to worry
