Ganglion cysts: Most likely they are ganglion cysts. It is pretty common to get one at your wrist. As far as collar bone goes, it depends on where it is located. If it is more towards your shoulder at the ac joint then it is more likely to be a small ganglion. Because the rest of the collarbone does not have any joints in it, it would be more rare for it to come up there. I would have it checked out by ortho. ...Read more

The cause of fluid is repeated movements of the wrist bones causing irritation. This should improve with rest but will reoccur with increased activity. Only way to completely get rid of it is to have surgery. If it doesn't hurt leave it alone if it bothers you see a ortho surgeon. ...Read more

Possibilities: One common condition that causes lumps on the wrist are ganglion cysts. These are formed by the fluid in your joints, synovial fluid, that normally lubricates the joints but have leaked out forming a small cyst in the nearby soft tissue. They are almost always harmless but can be treated if they become large and painful. ...Read more
