Rheumatoid arthritis nodules on wrist is that possible? How would i know if it's a nodule or something else?

In brief: Yes

An exam by doctor/rheumatologist can confirm. Mri will differentiate between a ganglion (common by the wrist) and a solid mass like a rheumatoid nodule.
Definitive test is an excisional biopsy.
