I have a bump in my hand near my wrist; about a CM bulging out my skin, is it possible it might be cancer?

In brief: Impossible to tell

Although it could very well be a benign cyst such as a ganglion cyst, without a complete history and physical examination possibly plus further testing, it would be impossible to tell what it is.
Please see your doctor.

In brief: Probably not

This sounds more like a cyst.
But you should bring this to the attention of your friendly dermatologist.
