Radiology

In brief: Suspect

Tendonitis or possibly a ganglion cyst.
Ultrasound is a great tool for further evaluation when done by someone competent in this modality. Might be useful to consider this if conservative treatment fails.

Surgery

In brief: Ganglion cyst

Probably a benign ganglion cyst, common with repetitive work.
Essentially a collection of leaked joint fluid in a thin but tough capsule outside the wrist joint. Sometimes may go away without treatment, but sometimes needs to be removed surgically if symptoms are interfering with normal activities.
