What could be the cause?  The cause for the tumor, or the reason that he sent you home, or the reason you do not have insurance?  I presume you are asking for the cause of the tumor.   I am not a doctor, but have a family member that has had this reoccuring problem.  It appears to me to be genetics, although I know of no other family members that have this problem.

It will likely have to be surgically removed.  God-willing all will go well.

I'm having the same symptoms, it is pressing a nerve that's probably why you don't feel your hand anymore, did you cure it? I think surgery is needed (i am not a doctor) I'm removing mine next week. Symptoms include: numbness in your hand, your underarm hurts, redness around the area where the fibrosis is on the nerve.
