I have a lump on my wrist, right below the right thumb. feels like a pinched nerve, its pain full only when i move my wrist a certain way. any one have any ideas about what I can do to fix this. It comes and it goes.
If it's what I have it's just a ganglion cyst. Mine is in exactly the same place. It first appeared about 20 years ago and can be there for years, then disappear one day. I think there is an old joke about slamming your wrist against a wall. My doctor even made that comment, in jest of course.....I think! Anyway, it's harmless.
Typ. Smashing a ganglion cyst with a book will make it go away. It's no "wive's tale." It's a treatment protocol. IF it is a ganglion cyst. It may not be. You really need for some to take a look-see with an M.D. who sees a lot of these things.
