Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
In all probability what your cousin has is a ganglion (cyst) or a neurofibroma. Both can cause pain in the wrist joint. A ganglion is a sac-like swelling or cyst formed from lining of a joint or from a tendon. A neurofibroma is a collection of nerve and fibrous tissue. If they are causing pain and pressure symptoms they need to be removed. Please consult your PCP to start with and get a referral for a surgeon. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
