What are hand lumps?
Hand lumps are abnormal growths or masses that can develop on or under the skin of the hand. These lumps can vary in size, shape, and consistency, and may be painless or painful to the touch. Some common types of hand lumps include:
Some common causes are mucous cysts, ganglion cysts, giant cell tumours of tendon sheath, while other causes include epidermal inclusion cysts, lipomas, glomus tumours, and nerve tumours.
Some of these names may sound confusing and worrisome, but most hand lumps are benign and not cancerous.
