In brief: See doctor.

There are a number of possibilities as the cause, and the best way to find out what it is and what to do for it is to have her doctor take a look.

In brief: Ganglion

In active children the most common mass to appear on the wrist and it is usually on the dorsal aspect(top of wrist) is a ganglion.
Most are asymptomatic and can be watched. If symptomatic or restricts range of motion then surgery is indicated. Surgery is safe and simple and can be done on outpatient basis. A pediatric anesthesiologist will make it go smoother
