Our hands are such an integral part of our daily life that a hand condition or tumour can cause you extreme inconvenience, not to mention pain. So finding the best and fastest way to get you back on track is our priority.
Any abnormal lump or bump in the hand or wrist is referred to as a tumour. However, the term tumour does not necessarily mean cancer, and the vast majority of hand and wrist tumours are benign (not cancerous). Hand tumours can occur on the skin (e.g. a mole), soft tissue, or even bone. The most common tumour seen in the hand is a ganglion cyst- a fluid-filled cyst that usually occurs in the wrist, but sometimes at the base of the fingers or around the finger joints. Other common types of hand and wrist tumours include giant cell tumours of the tendon sheath and epidermal inclusion cysts. Foreign bodies, such as splinters, can also trigger reactions that may lead to the development of a hand tumour. Again, the majority of these tumours are harmless but in some cases they may be painful and/or interfere with the normal function of the hand and wrist.
