In brief: Skin most common

While there are a lot of types of cancers you could get in the hand, skin cancers are probably the most common.
Non-cancer growths ("benign") are much more common than cancers -- and the most common of these things are cysts.

In brief: Several

The cancer would most likely arise from skin, muscle, or bone.
A squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma or melanoma would come from the skin. A sarcoma could be a lump deep in the muscles of the hand or near a bone. There are many non-cancerous lumps that occur in the hand as well. The most common is a cyst along a tendon or joint.
