Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
One of the causes of bumps on the skin, not only the skin of the hands, but can also in other skin areas of the body, is lipoma. Lipoma itself is a lump lump from fat tissue, located between the layers of the skin and muscles. Typically, a lump due to a lipoma will appear as a lump that is round in shape, has a firm border, has the same color as the skin, has a rubbery consistency, moves when pressed, and is about 5 cm in diameter, although it can also grow larger. In rare conditions, lipomas can also be painful, especially if they are enlarged or compress the surrounding nerve fibers. It is unclear exactly what factors trigger the formation of lipomas, but many experts conclude this condition is closely related to genetic factors (heredity).
Aside from lipomas, there are many other possible conditions that can cause lumps around the ribs as you experience them, for example:
Other benign or malignant tumors, for example cysts, sarcomas, fibromas
Infections, for example folliculitis, acne, shingles, warts
Inflammation of the skin due to other reasons, for example contact dermatitis, dermatitis herpetiformis
Others, such as nevus, hyperkeratosis, keloids, and so on
You need to see yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist so you can further identify the possible cause of the lump. That way, the best treatment can be determined so that your complaints improve. Frequently, later treatment can be done simply by observation, administration of drugs, to surgery. Further tests, such as biopsies, allergy tests, etc. may also be done by doctors as part of the diagnosis.
In the meantime, do not hold or press the lump, let alone use dirty hands. Always keep yourself clean, including by taking a bath regularly and wearing clean clothes. Do not carelessly give medication to the lump without a prescription directly from a doctor. If the pain in the lump is very annoying, first compress the lump with warm water so that the pain is reduced.
Hope this helps ...
