Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
Lump in vein of wrist
Hi, I am a 34 year old female. I have a small, hard lump on the inner side of my wrist, on the outer right edge. It isn`t sore andlooks like a vein lump. It has been there for a while, though recently appears to be getting bigger. I have a slight throbbing/tingling pain in the fingers and wrist area. There has been no known trauma to the wrist. Should I be concerned? Thank you.
It is hard to say what it may be without seeing it, but it could be related to a cyst that you can get on one of the nerves/tendons, or possibly something related to one of the veins on the inner aspect of the wrist. I would have your physician check it out to be careful. I hope this helps out somewhat.
