screw displacement

I undergo bunionectomy with 2 screw fixation, after a week the x-ray showed that one of the screws "came back" on a lateral view - 3 mm , the plantar view is OK. Does it mean that I should remove this screw in a future? Could it remain asymptomatic?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
