What are possible explanations for a wrist bump?

I don't know what caused this lump on my writs.

This is most commonly known as a ganglion cyst. The cause is unknown. Ask your doctor for more information regarding this.

It is possible that you could have a ganglion cyst. Ganglion cysts are more prevalent on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. Ganglion cysts can be surgically removed if they are bothersome. I have one on my arm and it is completely painless, so I choose not to have it removed.

You can get a lump on your wrist, known as a ganglion. Ganglions are fluid filled cysts and generally aren't harmful. They may go away on their own. If they are causing pain, a doctor can drain it. Historically, they were treated by slamming a book into them to break them. But this can cause other damage!

It is possible that it is ganglion cyst; the wrist being a common place for them to occur. They are dangerous to your health but can be surgically removed if you find them bothersome or unsightly.
