Bump on palm: Hard to say for sure without an exam, but ganglion cysts feel like little bumps underneath the skin and sometimes they can be sore. If it's on the surface of the skin (you can see it with your eyes), it could be an inflammatory reaction to something - a bug bite, trauma, or something else entirely.

At this point you would need to be evaluated by your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
