My right wrist was diagnosed with tendonitis. I have recently developed a lump the size of a dime right below my thumb on my right wrist. What could the possible diagnosis be? Please help! It is very painful among pressure and it even hurts to move my hand.
I wonder if you could be getting some arthritic changes in your hand..ALso, if you have ever had an IV in that hand it can leave bumps that hurt as well..I have two and can't remember what the the doctor said I want to say calcium build up at injection site but don't think that correct..Also am wondering if a Bone Scan would be something you should have done..It just shows how your bones and what kind of changes if any are going on..It doesn't hurt and takes litterally a couple mintues..
I have the same thing. I had tendonitis and had OT where they gave me excersises, ultra sound and a steriod injection. Finally got the inflamation under control then I developed a lump on the side of my hand almost were the wrist bone meets the thumb bone. Its hard and when I pinch it it feels like a mass not fluid. I thought it was a cyst. Not sure now. It doesn't move under my skin either. Not sure if I should get it checked or not. It doesn't really hurt unless I hit it hard.
it is probably just build up of fluid, even though it feels hard as bone. What you could ask your doctor yo do is to prick it with a clean needle and see if most of the fluid doesn't automatically come out (jelly-like blank fluid).
sourcr: i have had tendonitis in my wrtist for many years and have a lump like this. every now and then it gets bigger, but when pricked with a needle, fluid comes out and it becomes small again. It is a little tender for a day or two after doing this, and so it might look larger from swelling. but then the swelling goes down and it looks fine. Please let a doctor do this, though, so you are sure not to damage anything and not to get the wound infected.
