Hand surgeon: Your best bet is to consult a hand surgeon for diagnosis and treatment options. The lump on top of your wrist is probably a ganglion cyst. In addition, you may have carpal tunnel syndrome ( caused by thickened wrist ligaments) based on your symptoms of tingling of fingers. A band surgeon is best qualified to evaluate and treat you.
