Swollen Flexor Pollicis Brevis
For over a year now i have had a area on the palm of my hand which feels bumpy and swollen, it is around the base of my thumb.  As i am feeling the direction of the swelling i am convinced it seems to follow a muscle in my hand (flexor Pollicis brevis).  I am not experiencing any pain but if i extend my thumb as far as i can it generally just feels 'tight'.  i am unsure of what is going on and am afraid that eventually it could effect my thumbs range of motion.  Any ideas???

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
You could be having a thenar ganglion, swelling of the joints of the thumb, a lipoma or carpal tunnel syndrome. Please consult an orthopedic specialist.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
