Lump On The Left Hand Palm?
Hello .. greetings .. I want to ask ..? In the palm of my left hand there is a lump, this lump has been long and I feel getting bigger, The nature of this lump .. remains on the skin color of my hands, if I press it, it feels soft, smooth and never felt sick or painful even though I was holding sharp objects or lifting heavy objects .. I used to check with a surgeon in 2008 .. the results I did not understand at that time because there was no further process instead I was told to operate to Japan. thank you ..
Good evening, thanks for the question
Lumps or tumors on the hands are generally rare and most cases are benign. Ganglion cysts are the most common cause (50-70%). Tumors on the hands can be divided into 2 types of large parts, the first is a type of tumor derived from fat tissue, and the second is a type of tumor derived from fibrous connective tissue.
Tumors derived from fat tissue include:
1. Lipoma, can appear on the palm of the hand in the hypotenar and thenar muscles. Has the characteristics of lumps that are not painful, soft consistency, can be moved.
2. Angiolipoma, is the growth of fat tissue accompanied by blood vessels. This tumor can cause pain that requires surgery.
3. Lipofibroma and lipofibromatous hamartoma, are rare tumors that are associated with peripheral innervation. The hands can involve the ulnar, radial and plantar nerves. The main symptoms are pain and weakness in the area involved.
Benign tumors derived from fibrous connective tissue consist of:
1. Nodular fasciitis
4. Fibrous histiocytoma
Generally benign tumors if they cause complaints such as pain, limiting activity, or aesthetic problems, it is better to do a small operation to remove the lump mass. We recommend that you do further consultation with a surgeon for further examination and treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
