Hi All- I am wondering if anyone knows what this is...I have a bump on the inside- palm- of my hand just below the ring finger. it is under the skin and I can only feel it if I push down. It is in between the ring and the pinky finger pads and like I said it is below the skin. It sort of feels like a cyst. Anyway, I am a bit worried. Oh, and it is a little sore. I have full movement of my hand and fingers. If anyone knows what this is please help!
Hi. Sounds like a ganglion cyst. I had the same thing, sounds like about in the same spot too. I went to the doctor for this, because like you I was wondering what the heck it was. Mine was also painfull. The doctor was not concerned but said if it became a problem as far as affecting everyday activities because of the pain we could have it removed. He says more times than not they will disappear. Mine did disappear after a few months. You can *oo*%$ "ganglion cyst" and do some research of your own. Hope this helps & good luck. I wouldn't worry about it too much though.
Tracygirl- Thank you so much for your reply! I feel a lot better hearing from someone. If I search it I get this weird hand disease (Dupuytrens Disease) that eventually causes immobility. It scared me so much! I am seeing the doctor tomorrow and am hopeful that, like you, it is just a ganglian cyst! Take care
Hi MissBrit............I'm sure everything will go well for you at the doctors tomorrow. The internet and all it's endless knowledge can cause us unnecessary worry sometimes. I hope you post back after your appointment and let me know how it went. Good luck!
Hi! Thank you SO much for checking in on me! I love all the caring on these boards. Well, it is not as simple as a ganglian cyst...they think it is something to do with my bone I am getting an x-ray Friday. I will let you know then. I am a bit worried but there is nothing I can do but wait and see.
I had the same thing happen to me and I think it was caused by trying to lift my pool table with no gloves. I must have did some damage to cartilage or something like that. My hand was able to bend fine but there was pain whenever I tried to lift something heavy putting pressure directly on it. It felt like a piece of bone. You will be happy to know it does go away. I had mine for about a month and just over a couple of hours the pain was gone and it dropped down in size. But I do have to say I had massaged it a lot that day. Crazy huh? Guess the body can do all kinds of wierd things. Good luck to you!
