Masses & Lumps in San Diego, CA
Lumps, bumps and masses can appear on your hands and wrists. While they can be bothersome, many people panic and assume they have cancer. I want to assure a mass in your hands or wrists does not necessarily mean you have cancer.
However, if you are concerned about a mysterious lump, please come in and let me take a look. A simple procedure can go a long way to alleviating your fears. To determine the cause of your bump, I will do a number of quick examinations which will help me pinpoint the problem. This includes appearance and possible imaging with x-ray or MRI.
If it is possible your mass may be cancer, although rare in the hand and arm, I might refer you to an Orthopedic Oncologist. Early detection is your best chance, so if you wake up one morning with a bump on your hand, call us.
