Lump on wrist bone

Common Questions and Answers about Lump on wrist bone


Avatar_f_tn We discovered a lump on the left foot of our 3 year old male cat. It is sticking out right about at the wrist. We have taken him to the vet and the lump is very hard. They gave him an antibiotic shot in hopes that it was perhaps an abscess and would go down. It did not and actually has increased in size. He does not limp and gets around on it just fine but it does hurt when you push on it. We have plans to take him in and have it removed.
Avatar_f_tn The bump is located on the underside of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> to the far to right, it is not the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> that everyone has on the side of your wrist where your thumb is but slightly to the left of that and I don't have it on the other hand. So I would like to know what that is.
740522_tn?1246950425 Seems bo be brought on when i bend my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> too far forwards. The result is a pain in the top of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span>, right in the middle of the joint. When this happens it hurts to bent my wrist backwards. There is a tender spot where the pain is, and when i press that spot there seems to be a small lump. I asked a friend about it a while ago, who mentioned that it could be a small bone dislocating when i bend my wrist frowards, which then stops the wrist from bending backwards.
757597_tn?1315805412 Didn't eat well today. Pain was different. Pain in my collar <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> on both sides. aching continued. The weather was almost 50 . Muscles tender to the touch in both arms and back hurt when sitting longer than 20 minutes.

Avatar_f_tn im experiencing pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> whenever it is touched. and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> on my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span>, where there is pain, is so prominent that it looks like a small lump. it seems like there is a bone growth that looked like a small lump the size of a pea. what do you think is happening to my wrist? thank you!
Avatar_m_tn The top part of my hand itself was kind of swollen also. But my biggest concern is that there is a small lump on the bottum part of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> now that I can move around. It was pretty big when it originally happened and I kept pushing it back in. 4 days later however it is quite small but still sticks out. I was not and nor in any pain during the entire inccident and my fingers/wrist/thumb are free to move.
Avatar_n_tn Ganglion cysts most commonly occur on the back of the hand (60%-70%), at the wrist joint, and can also develop on the palm side of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span>. When found on the back of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span>, they become more prominent when the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> is flexed forward.
Avatar_n_tn The lump on her breast is sounding like early thelarche rather than a lump, this sounds like breast tissue, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> on one side is not unusual and the main goal is to rule out early puberty, so a bone age is sometimes helpful but NOT in a 2 yo. At age 2 and younger it is best to get a bone age of the knee rather than the wrist which we get in children over 2, even that is hard to interpret.So do not let the bone age alone make you panic.
Avatar_n_tn Hard painful lum noted on top left hand below <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> and in line with index and middle finger. Very painful when bumped and with flexion. Pain with burning, throbbing to wrist, hand, and fingers as well. Same bump on right hand but not painful at present. Bump is firm and feels like bone. Any thoughts what it could be?
Avatar_n_tn Is this lump on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> the same area where you had the ganglion cyst removed? If not it sounds like another one. It may be pressing on a nerve and causing your problem. The surgery isn't 100% effective or one of the falls you had may have caused it. In any case it sounds like something is pressing on the nerve. It could be carpal tunnel also. My friend has carpal tunnel in her wrist and elbow and she feels the pain and numbness from the elbow downward.
Avatar_f_tn I am 14 years old and I have been experiencing pain in my wrist for a little under 5 months. It is a hard lump on my right is located under my pinky side of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> and where the bone is. It is bigger and fatter than my left wrists bone. It hurts to twist both ways more clockwise than the other. Recently it has also even aching and hurting when I'm not doing anything with it. I have asked my parents if we should check it but they said no.
Avatar_f_tn I am an athletic trainer and I had athletes that have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> trouble all the time. Is the clicking on the radial or ulnar side or the wrist? If on the ulnar side it could be the TFCC which is cartilage that can get irritated or torn and pop and click. You may also have a carpal bone out of place. An orthopedic doctor should be able to help you out pretty easily! If you aren't having tingling, numbness or anything like that I wouldn't chalk it up to carpal tunnel just yet!
1027575_tn?1390964018 Just make sure your therapist doesn't push all your scar tissue into one spot like mine did. I have a lump on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> of scar tissue. Any ways, let us know how things are going. Oh yeah I had a few questions. Your original surgery for the small Tfcc but then you had more surgeries, what were those surgeries if you don't mind me asking?
Avatar_m_tn Doctor, I have a hard lump on the back of my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span>, that I think I've had for at least a few years. It seems to extend from at or about the point where my forearm bones meet at the wrist joint, into the "Anatomical Snuffbox". In the adjacent direction, it seems to be about three quarters of an inch across, and it sticks up enough to be easily felt, but not so much as to be noticed by anyone, but me. I'm willing to send a photograph, if you want.
499577_tn?1210430393 I have a tender non moving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> like lump on top of my hand near my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> in line between my thumb and next finger. I also have swelling and pain in my wrist and knuckles. Any idea's?
Avatar_n_tn Also, wrist must remain straight during bench press, any angle in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> means the weight is put on the joint, not on the muscle. That results in injury. Hope that helps someone.
Avatar_f_tn Gross, My husband has had very bad pain in his wrist under the thumb side. Recently he has a hard lump like a round <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> there. It is very painful. He delivers papers and throws them out of car window..about 300+ a day. He wears a brace that a PT friend of mine gave him which helps with the pain..only if he wears it though extremly tight. It keeps his wrist straight..has metal in the brace. Nothing seems to help..anti-inflam, ice, heat, etc. He has no health insurance to go to Dr.
Avatar_n_tn I noticed last night that I have a small bump above my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> on the right hand on the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span>. it almost feels like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span>. If press hard enough it hurts. but it doesnt cause me any pain otherwise.
Avatar_f_tn I have a small lump about the size of a pea on my forearm about 4 inches from my elbow. It is very sore to the touch. Any ideal what this could be?
Avatar_n_tn , which is it, soft like cartiledge, or hard like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span>? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> feels like rock. Feel your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> - does it feel like that? Or does it feel like cartiledege - like the tip of your nose? I have a lipoma on my skull that has been there 48 years. Feels like cartiledge. It's totally harmless. Best wishes.
Avatar_n_tn I have a lump on top of my right hand just above the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> 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. .
Avatar_n_tn Without any further description, the EMT put his finger right on the lump and told me I had arthritis of the hyoid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span>. He gave me some anti-inflamaty drugs. While I was relieved that the EMT recognized my symptoms, I have occasional doubts that something more serious is going on. It really helps me to have you all reporting the same symptoms and concluding its the hyoid bone. I never had any trauma to the neck.
428506_tn?1296560999 I have ganglion cysts on the inside of both wrists, on the outside of my forearms (around the widest part) and on the outside of my wrists, a little ways back from my wristbone. None of my ganglion thingies are actually on a joint - they're usually a couple of inches away.
Avatar_f_tn I had lig rupture in wrist which caused hole in cartilage btwn wrist & top of ulnar bone. Orhtop Dr did ulnar shortening 7yrs ago w/no complications & great healing. 5yrs ago he rmvd plate/screws-again w/no probs & great healing. 3mos ago I started having mid ulnar bone pain. Became incrsgly worse & ached in bed too, then came pain w/usage. Noticed a hard lump on bone. Next month it almost doubled in size. Couple wks later 2nd lump formed.
Avatar_n_tn the cyst like lump may be a build up of fluid that, over time, turns in to jelly consistency making a hard lump. Look it up on internet. Your association of your hand problem with your breast ca problem is not the first logical conclusion (although to a lay person with breast ca - it is a constant worry that the Cancer is somewhere else hiding). Breast cancer spreads to brain, lung, lymph nodes and bone...
Avatar_f_tn i have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> like cysts that dont hurt or.move..iv one on each <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span>.( they actually hurt alot ) one tucked behind my jaw bone.under ear which is.literally like bone and one at the top.of my head its.pushing against my skull...iv had them years...hopefully scan.will put yr mind to rest...
Avatar_m_tn Yesterday I picked up a cup of coffee out of the microwave using my left hand. Immediatly after my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> got a 1 to 2 inch lump on it. Didnt hurt really. The next day my entire palm side of my wrist is bruised. It isnt painful but it is a bothersome feeling when typing at work and driving. Let me also add that I am 23 years old in good shape. I also have only been working at a job where typing is an everyday occurance for 2 weeks and 1 day.
Avatar_f_tn The bump is located on the underside of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wrist</span> to the far to right, it is not the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bone</span> that everyone has on the side of your wrist where your thumb is but slightly to the left of that and I don't have it on the other hand. So I would like to know what that is.
