Question Lump On My Wrist

I got this lump on my right wrist, i have had it ever since Feb with no trouble. Doesn't usually hurt but some people have said you can get rid of these lumps my hitting them which disperses the tissue in the lump and of course i wanna get rid of it. Anyone got any thoughts about this???

Re: Lump On My Wrist

It sounds like you have a wrist ganglion (cyst). They're very common, and not serious...they just don't look so great!
I had one years ago and it spontaneously went away all by itself over a few months.

Check out more info on MEDLINE (permission to post this webiste from moderators):

Re: Lump On My Wrist

Matty,

I had this too a few years afo. It's weird how it doesn't hurt huh? It just looks like it would hurt, lol. My doctor told me it can sometimes appear from over using the wrist. I guess maybe typing too much, or cracking your wrist too much. Not sure if that is the case for you.

Re: Lump On My Wrist

Hi Matty,

LOL, I guess that did sound a little weird......but yep, I do crack my wrist......just like one would crack their back. I know I shouldn't do it because it can lead to arthritis, but now if I don't, it aches real bad You'd be amazed at to what I can crack on my body, lol. Ankles, wrist, back, knees, neck, etc......LOL
