On back of hand in almost centre I have I guess you call them small lumps that appear when I make a fist its one then when I bend my knuckles down it splits off into two. Nothing on my right hand. When you touch them it doesn't hurt or anything just feels a little odd. I don't think I noticed it before and just wondering is this normal?
It could be a ganglion. A ganglion cyst is a swelling or tumor on a joint or tendon sheath. Wrist ganglion cysts are lumps around the wrist and hand. Wrist ganglion cysts are benign collections of synovial fluid that arise either from a joint or tendon. If it causing numbness or pain, it can be surgically excised. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation.
