The Dangers of Benign Hand Masses

Published on April 17, 2018

There are a lot of different types of benign masses that can form in the hand. In most cases, the mass is an inclusion cyst, ganglion cyst, benign lipoma, or benign giant-cell tumor. However, just because the mass is benign does not mean it is not dangerous.

A benign mass can cause several debilitating issues in the hand. Some people may notice a decrease in their range of motion, others may experience chronic pain or a feeling of numbness in the hand. That is why it is important that you have your hand mass evaluated by a trained specialist.

If you have a debilitating hand mass and are in need of professional care to treat the issue, contact the Hand and Plastic Surgery Center of Katy to schedule a consultation. We can provide you with the relief you need.
