It could be a wrist fracture.If you think you've sustained a broken wrist or a broken hand, seek prompt medical attention. It's important to treat a broken wrist or broken hand as soon as possible. Otherwise, the bones may not heal in proper alignment, which can affect your ability to perform everyday activities, such as grasping a pen or buttoning a shirt.

Treatment for a broken wrist or a broken hand depends on the exact site and severity of the injury. A simple break (fracture) may be treated with a splint, ice and rest. However, a more complicated broken wrist or broken hand may require surgery to realign the broken bone and to implant wires, plates, rods or screws into the broken bone to maintain proper alignment during healing.

If you have a broken wrist or broken hand, you may experience these signs and symptoms:

Severe pain, which may increase during gripping or squeezing
Obvious deformity, such as a bent wrist or crooked finger
Stiffness or inability to move your finger or thumb
Numbness or coldness in your finger or thumb

Causes of a broken wrist
Your wrist is made up of eight small hand bones (carpal bones) plus two long bones in your forearm — the radius, on the thumb side of your arm, and the ulna, on the pinky side of your arm. Together, these bones allow your wrist to bend, straighten and rotate, so you can bang a hammer, pitch a ball or swing a jump-rope.

It's possible to break any of the bones that make up your wrist, but the radius is the most commonly broken wrist bone. This type of fracture, often called a distal radius fracture or Colles' fracture, usually occurs when you fall forward onto an outstretched hand, during a bike accident, ski accident or fall from a roof or ladder. It can also happen during a car collision. Fractures of the ulna bone also are common and also occur from a direct blow to your arm.

The most commonly injured carpal bone is the scaphoid bone — which is the carpal bone located near the base of your thumb. Scaphoid fractures usually occur during a fall, but can result from a blunt blow to your wrist

These factors may put you at risk of a broken wrist or broken hand:

Participating in certain sports activities. Contact sports, such as basketball, football rugby, wrestling and hockey, are common causes of a broken wrist or broken hand. Recently, more wrist and hand fractures are due to adventure sports, such as snowboarding and skiing.
Having certain health conditions. Osteoporosis, bone disease and calcium deficiency may make you more susceptible to a broken wrist or broken hand.

See your doctor if you have any signs or symptoms of a broken wrist or broken hand, including numbness, swelling or trouble moving your fingers. Delays in diagnosis and treatment can lead to poor healing, decreased range of motion and decreased grip strength.

Seek emergency medical attention if your hand or wrist is very painful or severely deformed. Also seek urgent evaluation of your hand or wrist if you see any skin cut or laceration with bone protruding through the skin near your injury. An exposed bone can lead to a severe infection if not treated promptly.

Well I woke up one morning and had this lump on my wrist, I could remember reading some where that it was probably a Ganglion, and the cure was to hit it hard with a book or some thing heavy I did this and next day it was gone. So you could try this before going to the doctor. Hope this works

Mel C
that is called a ganglion which is a fatty deposit on the nerve cell. don't worry about it -it will probably go away but for quicker results hitting with a book does work and shouldn't cause you any further problems.

It sounds like you may have a ganglion cyst. A ganglion can be caused by overuse of the joint, which results in the degeneration of the surrounding fibrous tissue and the development of the cyst. The cyst contains clear fluid similar to synovial fluid and are most commanly found around the wrist joint.

Sometimes they disappear on their own accord but if problematic can be removed by surgery.

I had one a few years ago on my wrist and it felt like a sprain until this lump appeared, I had mine surgically removed as it was causing a fair bit of pain. Hope you find this helpful :o)

Another thing that it could be is a calcium deposit under your skin . I have them on the under side of my wrist and they dont hurt per say but get achy and stiff feeling . It isnt hard like a marble more like a grape feeling under my skin . If its that there is nothing to worry about . Hope you feel better soon !!!


Sometimes you can get fatty deposits under the skin, especially around the wrist. Just to put your mind at rest, get your gp or clinic nurse to check it over. I have had a fatty lump on my wrist since i was a child, and it never bothers me at all.

oh deary me
I bet its a ganglion, whack it with a bible!
