Have it evaluated: Get the hand evaluated. It is impossible to say without examining it.

Yes: Yes, though it's a hassle and can get uncomfortable. If you're going to be pumping regularly, you probably want an electric pump.

Pinched nerve: Pinched nerve at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome) is a common cause for such symptoms. However other causes of peripheral neuropathy should be considered and ruled out by history, physical exam and some blood tests. Diabetes, thyroid disease and some medications are common causes. I suggest you discuss with your pcp.

Depends on hormones : I think that would depend on the type of hormone you are talking about and the scan you had. If you didnt get instructions then check with your doctor first. Did you have a thyroid scan? Was it a bone scan or a density scan?

Carpal tunnel: Overuse and abuse r the most common cause at this age to cause the pain/ numbness. Try an ace wrap n also if u type a lot txt msging computer typing then cut that down. If no improvement then see ur doc.

Yes: Just as it retains its bones and blood vessels the donor skin remains. Therefore the hand will retain the same fingerprints.
