Why Does A Missing Lump Appear On The Base Of The Ring Finger Of The Right Palm?
Good night, I want to ask, a month ago I found a lump in the palm of my hand just below the base of my right ring finger, a lump round and hard as a bone, after a while the lump disappeared on its own, but now it reappears, can you please give an explanation?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumps on the hand, can occur due to various causes, including:
Ganglion cyst Bruising or swelling due to certain physical activity Lipoma or growth of fat tissue Insect bites Bacterial infection Tumor or cancer
Information is still needed as to what your daily activities are, how your hand's position when grasping something, whether the lump is painful, what size it is, whether it can be shifted when pushed, its shape, its limits and other characteristics to determine what the lump might actually be. In some cases an x-ray may be needed to see the origin of the lump. Therefore, we recommend that you check your condition with your orthopedic doctor for a more complete assessment. Treatment can vary depending on the diagnosis. It can be surgery, but you have the right to refuse if you are not willing.
Meanwhile, do not squeeze the lump, avoid as much as possible strenuous activities to do repetitive movements using the hands in question, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
