Lumps and bumps frequently occur in the hands and wrists. Many are benign, fluid-filled masses like mucous cysts, retinacular cysts, and ganglion cysts. Others are benign, solid masses such as lipomas, fibromas, and giant cell tumors of tendon sheath or bone tumors like enchondromas. Our doctors can guide your treatment from possible needle aspiration and biopsy to removal and reconstruction.
