I have the cyst on my right hand middle finger near my finger nail and it's pretty big! What can I do naturally?

In almost every situation, it’s safe to leave these cysts alone. You can take OTC medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) to relieve pain. Regular use of warm compresses may increase blood circulation and promote fluid drainage. Warm compresses, however, will not prevent cyst growth. However, if the cyst has ruptured on its own, it's recommended to take surgery.

You are suggested to find what kind of cyst it is. If there is fluid inside, you can wait it to be absorbed by your body. If it becomes red, swollen, seems to be infected and causes pain, you need to see your doctor for treatment.
