I have a swollen sore spot on the top of my wrist. It hurts and limits my hand and finger movement. Is this a tumor?

Could be, but....: It is most likely a ganglion cyst--a benign cyst that originates from (usually) the wrist joint and is filled with joint fluid. To be sure, see a hand surgeon. These can be removed, but they have a fairly high recurrence rate and their removal may not relieve the pain. Get it checked. ...Read more

Tendonitis: First off, the swollen vein may not be significant. The painful wrist can develop from a poor position during sleep, it may subside with immobilization of the joint (an ACE bandage) to limit motion, but not so tight that it may cause swelling of the hand. On the other hand it may go away on its own. ...Read more

Poor equipment fit: This obviously could be something else but the most likely reason is poor fitting equipment. Have you had the holes in your bowling ball professionally assessed? Try that. Sore wrist is common if you are trying to put spin on the ball and if the ball is too heavy. Try wrist guards and a lighter ball. ...Read more

Trauma: Depending on how hard you smacked your hand, you may have damaged the blood vessels and there may be a bleeding into the tissues. Apply ice to the area and keep it elevated. It is not likely to be due to mosquito bite. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more

I recently jammed my hand against a surface.  Joint at base of middle finger sore and stiff and slightly swollen. Bends ok.What is this?  Treatment?

Sprain vs fracture: You either sprained the finger ( tendon injury) or fractured the bone. You need to see a physician to evaluate it to see if an x-ray is needed. For now you can ice it. You can also take Ibuprofen to help pain and swelling as long as you do not have a history of a stomach ulcer, kidney or liver disease, or high blood pressure. It is more likely sprained but get it checked. ...Read more
