Painless Lump On Hand
I have a very small painless lump on my hand you can only feel it, it's not visible to the eye, and I've had it for roughly 2-3months ?
Depending on where: it is on your hand, and size can determine what it could be. Is it on the back or your hand, or palm? Is it tiny or is it large? When do you notice it? Is it by the wrist?

Start there, and don't worry! ...Read more
