Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question.
I would like to ask you a few questions which will help me assess your situation better.
Could you please tell me if this lump seems to be moving underneath your skin? Is it located on the palm or on top of your hand? Is there any redness surrounding this bump? How long have you had it and has the lump gotten bigger?
Hello no the lump is not moving and has gottin bigger the lump is on the palm of my left hand it been there for about a month but now i am having some pain when using my hand. thank you
Thank you for your reply.
The most likely cause of the lump on your hand is what is called "Ganglion cyst". A cyst is a benign tumor filled with thick, sticky, clear, colorless, jellylike material. They are will not cause you any potential harm other than cause discomfort or pain. Quite often they have to be surgically removed. To remove a ganglion cyst is a minor outpatient procedure. I would recommend that you see an orthopedic Hand specialist for evaluation. You might need to get an ultrasound of the hand prior to seeing the specialist to visualize the size of the cyst and its consistency.
I hope you find this information helpful. Please feel free to follow-up with any other questions you might have.
