Ruptured cyst: The lump needs to be evaluated. It may be a cyst that has ruptured. It could also be related to the tendons, muscles or nerves in your wrist. You may benefit from an ultrasound of the lump as well. Please see a physician.

Cyst? Need exam: Sounds like a cyst that may be inflamed. Have a healthcare provider look at the lesions to determine the nature of it. Your primary care provider or a skin doctor will be of great help.Very difficult to give the right answer without exam. You may also schedule a virtual visit with a HealthTap doctor.
