Hand pain may develop for a number of reasons -- fracture and infection are among the most serious while sprains and strains are among the most common. There are rare causes of symptoms that will not be included here and would require more detailed evaluation than this guide can provide.

Thanks for your reply. Its not a fracture or a sprain, so I guess yes there could be infection but considering I have been to the doctors twice and they are not sure it leaves me to wonder what else could be the problem. Im awaiting to see a hand specilist which I'm sure will take a long time to happen.

NAS1974,

Reading the original poster's message, that member probably has inflammatory tenosynovitis. This is also called Trigger Finger. Many of these patients will have nodules on the flexor tendons, which can be tender. If the nodules get large enough, they can get stuck in the pulleys of the fingers, causing the fingers to lock (trigger finger).


But, there are a lot of things which can cause pain in the hands and fingers. Is your wife having exactly the same problems as the member in the first post above, or are hers a little different?

Again, what the member who made the first post has, is most likely inflammatory tenosynovitis.


But, swelling, lumps, and bumps in the hand have numerous etiologies. These can includes, but are not limited to: Dupuytrens' contractures, ganglion cysts, EIC (epidermal inclusion cysts), fibromas, granulomas, foreign body granulomas, tophi, inflammatory arthropathies, tendonitis, and the list goes on.

Without more information, and most likely a thorough examination, it is not really possible to tell what the cause of your wife’s swelling and tenderness could be.

Good luck.
