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

Hello I have had a hard lump appear almost overnight on my left wrist, I joined a gym on Sunday and used light weights could this be why?

Ganglion Cyst: Most likely it is a cyst which is caused by excessive fluid from your wrist pushing out against the joint capsule. 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

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.

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
