As with all living tissue, the wrist, hand and finger can exhibit the formation, of lumps and bumps, most of which are benign or not dangerous.
However, even though these bumps or growths may not pose a risk to your health, their inconvenient location in your hand will often impair the normal and comfortable way in which your hand is supposed to function in daily interaction with your immediate environment.
It is suggested that any mass which is growing on your wrist, hand or fingers lasting more than a month: should be promptly brought to the attention of a hand surgeon for evaluation. This will ensure that these conditions will be treated earlier rather than later, and will benefit you with the shortest possible recovery time after treatment.
Tumors can occur on the skin, such as a mole or a wart, or underneath the skin in the soft tissue or even the bone. Because there are so many types of tissue in the hand (e.g. skin, fat, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, bone, etc.), there are many types of tumors that can occur. Only a few of them are seen commonly.
