Increased Lumps In The Hand And Pain In The Right Hand
Good morning doctor, my wife often experience pain in the right hand. It turns out there is a lump in the hand (between the wrist to the elbow). In the beginning there was only one, but now it is 3. And if you are very ill that you can’t move your arms normally, what should we do, doc? Please advise. Thank you doctor
Thank you for the question.
Pain in the right hand accompanied by the appearance of lumps in the wrist area to the elbow may be caused by:
Skin infections, for example due to shingles, folliculitis, leprosy
Benign or malignant tumors, for example lipoma, cyst, ganglion, sarcoma
Gouty arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to the accumulation of uric acid crystals)
Other factors, such as neurofibromatosis, irritant contact dermatitis, insect bites, keloids, lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes), rheumatoid arthritis, and so on
The above conditions can vary the potential danger, as well as handling. And the most entitled to determine the exact cause of your wife's complaint must be the doctor who examined it directly. Therefore, you try to take it to the nearest doctor. If necessary, the doctor can refer your wife to a surgeon or dermatologist, and even direct a supporting test, such as an x-ray, ultrasound, biopsy, blood test, etc. .
In the meantime, your wife's complaints can be relieved first by:
Compress warm areas that are often painful
Improve personal hygiene
Do not massage or stab careless lumps in the body
Don't take medicine carelessly
Maintain endurance with a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
