hello. can you take a picture of it? The most likely thing is a synovial cyst, otherwise known as a ganglion cyst. It is a outpouching of the synovial membrane that is between the bones of the wrist and hand. Dr Frank

that is an example of one, it should feel a little rubbery, and move slightly when you push on it, not move all over, just depress. It is not at all serious. It should go away in a few days. You can wrap it with an ace bandage to promote its compression to help it go back. You will read online about hitting it with a heavy book, etc. Don't do that. Dr frank
