? ganglion cyst: Your son most likely has a ganglion cyst. You can GOOGLE this and see if you recognize it. Sometimes they are painful while enlarging, but when stable they no longer hurt. The wrist area is a very common area for this to occur. The treatment is "expectant" meaning just watch it, document its size, and it may disappear. If it is a ganglion cyst it is a benign condition.
