I have a small pea size lump on my left collar bone, it moves & is painful also large lump on left wrist both appeared at same time. What are these?

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

Pain in my left wrist in between the joints. Barely touch my wrist almost puts me in tears. From time to to i get a lump on my w work in the kitchen at a residents home lifting and pushing flats of dishes through a dishwasher, twisting and jarring my wris

There : There could be a new injury or an old one between the joints is a very vague description' the lump may be secondary to inflammtion from an injury or a sign of chronic swelling from an old injury ie it could be an old ligament, injury and old fracture of a bone such as the scaphoid. It could be arthritis. Its too hard to tell based upon the story. One common problem is a ganglion which are not typiically painful when they are large. Tendinitis or gout can be very painful at times and can prsent with a lump form swelling as well it sounds like you need to see a hand surgeon and be evaluated and get some xrays. ...Read more

3 itchy soft white lumps appeared on the middle of left wrist, sfrom the base of my hand down my arm. What are they? Not hive, i've had those b4

Can't tell: However early shingles may start with itching before the bumps turn dark and painful. Google a picture of dermatome and see if your lesions follow any of the dermatome pattern. If it does, early anti-viral treatment may reduce the intensity and complication of shingles. However if you have had the same lesions b4 at the same location, shingles would be unlikely. ...Read more

I have a small lump about the size of a grain of rice on the side of my left wrist beneath my thumb. Its not visible, can be moved a little, and hurts?

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
