And where exactly is it located?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
on the back of my hand in the middle of it. when i move my fingers it moves. very small
Expert:  tazechip replied 5 years ago.
OK. This is either a ganglion cyst of the tendon sheath or tendonitis--inflammation of that area of the tendon. Not serious but a cyst may enlarge so it would be a good idea to have a doctor look at it.

not cancer then

 

Expert:  tazechip replied 5 years ago.
No--not the right symptoms and too rapid an appearance.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Ive seen pictures of a ganglion cyst and it i much smaller or i am being too picky
Expert:  tazechip replied 5 years ago.
The pictures are there to show cysts that are large enough to be remarkable on plain photos--those you looked at probably took months to get that big.
