Over the past couple of months I have noticed the development of a hard bony mass on the top of my hand (in the center, below the wrist). At first, the pain came and went, but not it's constant. The lump does not exist on the other hand. This may or may not be a factor, but I work out daily with heavy weights.
That's what I thinking, but I had my doubts because it is on the flat part of my hand. Bone spurs usually form around joints or on parts of the body that make contact with other surfaces (ex., feet). Obviously, the top of my hand gets very little contact.
I think I may have the same thing on the top of my left hand. It is about the size of a pea and it is getting a little tender when I press on it. I do not lift weights nor do I any other hard lifting work since I am only a Manager at a local restaurant. I have had this lump for almost a week and a lot of people tell me I need to see a Doctor, however, some say that it could just be a calcium deposit or a cyst that will go away in time. Should I be more concerned about this? Do I need to see a Doctor?
I have a lump on top of my right hand just above the wrist and it was thought to be a ganglion cyst but the doctors tried to drain it twice and gave me a steroid injection and now they are puzzled. because it seems to be something else.I work with my hands all day in a automotive plant and I am off work due to pain and cannot do my job. .Have to wear brace on hand and cannot lift anything because I end up dropping it because the pain shoots up to my arm and feels like a knife going into my elbow.Pain wakes me up at night.I am right handed so this is a huge issue with my everyday life..Been doing everything left handed.Doctor is sending me to have a MRI.i hope to get this taken care of so I can get back to work and be able to do my chores at home without being in pain!
