Conservative managemnet after an year of volar plate injury is unlikely to yeild best results. Best results are obtained when management is initiated early. Interventional or surgical measures are only considred in cases of severe injury or where the deformity or functional impairment is severe. Also without a physical examination it would be difficult to determine the cause of the lump. Possibilities include inflammations, cysts, degeneration, growths/ masses etc. You could try some warm compresses and/ or OTC NASIDS for pain relief at home. Physiotherapy may also be helpful. If the discomfort continues, it is best advised to consult your orthopedician for a possible review in the management plan.
Hope this is useful.
