So, here’s a photo of the solid, painful bump on my wrist bone. No, I’ve never broken it… It doesn’t hurt all the time. It only hurts if I press on it, and it is quite solid, like bone, or when I bend my wrist in certain positions, such as this one for the photo to demonstrate it’s out-of-whack-ness. I also can’t bend my wrist backward very far – not nearly far enough to do a push-up. This started out small and I had noticed it about six months ago. The reason I’m noticing it now is because it’s getting arthritic-feeling, whatever it is, and brings stiffness and soreness to my left wrist. It also limits my mobility in that wrist, which isn’t a good sign. I see my primary care doctor on Monday. This one’s on the table for examination and discussion, for sure! I need to be able to climb!!!
Content Rating PG, for the most part
I try to keep the content of my posts in the PG range (meaning that maybe your 13-year-old should not read it... Just kidding!) - you know, something I could get away with tastefully in the town square without getting lynched, tarred-and-feathered, or hung (and something my mother would NOT wash my mouth out with soap for). As far as what age you have to be to understand some of the subtleties of my humor in writing and/or speaking, well... That may vary. A lot.

I have the same thing. What did the doctor tell you. Please let me know
It’s called a ganglion cyst and a shot of cortisone from the orthopedic doctor straight into it should take care of it. If not, they can remove it surgically.
