raised bump at base of fingernail

The bump is about 1/8" around - not really noticeable.  When you look closely it seems there may be some clear liquid and a dark spot beneath the skin.  It has been there 6 months and has flatened my nail - same width as dot.  Rest of nail looks normal except the flat strip - ridged on each side.  I have not tried any medicine.  When I close my fist the dot pokes out more.  It does not hurt.  What should I do?
