    Unhappy Small Lump On wrist of my left hand

    m 26 years old male. I have a small hard lump on my left wrist. it is noticeable when i move my wrist downwards,a small lump can be seen. It does not cause any pain.From what i see it does not seem to be a cyst but a round muscle bulge beneath the skin . Can you please advice as to what it might be ?? and suggest as to which doctor to consult

    Get an appointment with your general doctor. He may refer you to a specialist. Lumps should be treated quickly.

    More than likely this is a ganglion cyst. They are harmless, come and go- and they are simply show up on the tendons of the wrist. They normally go away on their own and they are never treated.
    You can go see your general doctor who will refer you if he thinks it is something else, but 99% of the time thats all they are.
    I have one. It drives me nuts randomly showing up and going away. Ive been told by 10 doctors to ignore it because there is nothing to worry about.
    Good luck!

    id see your doctor,most likely a ganglion cyst which is a fluid filled sack,most the time they dont need to be treated but sometimes do need excising,mine grew to golf ball size in no time and ended up having surgery(dont freak out tho as its rare) but id get it confirmed thats what it is then just keep a eye on it

    yep, I think it's a ganglion cyst as well.

    Definitely sounds like a ganglion cyst, especially since you said it’s a hard lump. If you would like to do some interesting reading on it, research “Bible cyst” and there are some online videos. A friend of mine had one and asked me to try the Bible treatment which did work, but only temporarily. I would certainly not recommend that to you. Your primary care physician can check it out for you.
