Lump On The Wrist Near The Bone?
Good night doctor, I have a lump on my wrist near a blood vessel, like near a bone, what do you feel when you press it?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Lump is an abnormal growth of tissue in the body. Some are docile and malignant. Benign tumors are usually not progressive development, grow slowly, and do not cause damage to surrounding organs. While malignant tumors grow rapidly or progressively, causing damage to surrounding organs, and cause weight loss. Lumps on the wrist can be caused by several things depending on the characteristics of the lump and the location of the lump. Lumps on the palm are mostly caused by benign tumors. Some lumps that can appear on the hands include ganglion cysts, lipomas, lumps from bones, or lumps due to inflammation of the joints. The most common cause of a lump on the wrist is a ganglion cyst, which is the formation of a pouch filled with yellowish joint fluid, generally harmless. Ganglion cysts are generally not
cause pain. However, if the cyst is suppressed innervation, symptoms such as pain, tingling, tingling, numbness, or even muscle weakness can occur. To ensure the lump should be examined by a doctor, the doctor will conduct question and answer about the lump, progression and its characteristics, risk factors, etc. and physical examination, and maybe also some supporting examinations if needed. Handling depends on the condition of the lump, can be left just like that, or reduce inflammation with drugs, to the surgical procedure to remove the lump. To help reduce these complaints, it can be warm compressed on the bump area, avoid injury or excessive heavy activity in the area that has a bump, eat nutritious food, adequate rest, adequate fluid needs, and avoid cigarettes and alcohol. If the complaint is felt very disturbing, don't delay to see a doctor.
Thus, hopefully useful.
