Lump In The Skin Of The Hand, Hard But Not Painful When Pressed?
my mother, how come there is a small lump on her hand near her elbow, the lump is a bit hard and if you squeeze it doesn’t hurt, the lump has been around 1 year old. Is there any problem?
Lumps that are not normal in the body should be examined immediately to be examined carefully and determine the type of lump.
The hard lump that you are complaining about can be a medical condition like =
Epidermoid cyst, a cyst that arises from trapped skin epidermal tissue. Atherom cyst. Lipoma. Is a tumor caused by abnormal fat cell growth. Fibroma. Benign connective tissue tumor in the skin. Ganglion, a tumor caused by leakage of joint fluid in the tendon. A physical exam to the doctor can help identify the type of lump. If you need confirmation, the lump needs to be removed and checked in the laboratory to determine the type of cell pathology that the lump has.
Thus, handling a lump can only use the surgical method to remove the lump. With the appointment, it can be done both diagnostic and treatment measures.
Consult your mother's problem to the nearest surgeon to get an examination and treatment according to the mother's condition.
I hope this helps.
