Effective Treatment for Hand Masses in Katy, TX

Masses of Hand Katy TexasLumps and bumps can occur on the hand, wrist, and forearm. Most of the time, these masses are benign in nature. Yet even a benign mass can cause disabling symptoms including pain, numbness, or limitation in motion or activity.

What Are Masses of the Hand?

Masses of the hand and fingers are most commonly ganglion cysts, inclusion cysts, benign giant cell tumors, or benign lipomas. On the wrist, they are most commonly ganglion cysts. Removal of these masses can be performed on an outpatient basis. Even with complete removal, there is a small chance of recurrence in some cases, depending on the nature of the mass.

Occasionally, a mass of the hand can be malignant. Usually, it is a skin cancer associated with a history of excessive sun exposure. Fortunately, more aggressive forms of cancer are rare in the hand and upper extremities. If you are concerned about a mass of the hand, wrist, or forearm, please call our office today at 832-232-HAND (4263) to be evaluated by one of our specialists.

What Causes Masses of the Hand to Form?

Hand masses can form due to several causes with varying degrees of rarity. For example, having a foreign object lodged in the hand and left there can cause a bump to form due to accumulated tissue and fat. Some blood vessels, fat deposits, and nerves can also grow to form masses.

Many of these causes can share a few things in common, including blockages that then result in accumulating fluids that turn into cysts or tumors.

How to Prevent Hand Masses

The only thing that patients can do to reduce the chances of getting hand masses is try to live a healthy lifestyle by staying fit and having a balanced diet. In many cases, the issue can have a genetic component.

Injuries or lesions that form without the patient taking notice can lead to tumors or cysts. Patients must make sure to be vigilant regarding injuries and lesions and must treat these properly.

When to Get Hand Masses Checked

In many cases, the hand masses that form are benign and non-cancerous. However, once they start having a debilitating effect on the patient or if they are getting too big, it’s best to have them checked.
