Hand Tumor and Lump

Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after doctors for hand tumor and hand masses treatment in Palm Beach. Hand tumors and hand masses are typically caused by abnormal growths of cells in the tissues of the hand. Fortunately the majority of these tumors and masses are benign and not cancer. They show up as “lumps” in the hands and fingers. They typically arise from skin, fat, tendons, and blood vessels. In less common cases, they can arise from bones or cartilage.

Hand Tumor and Lumps Symptoms and Diagnosis

Ganglion Cyst


There are too many types of hand lumps and tumors to have a single cause. The most common lumps are mucous cysts and ganglion cysts which are through to be caused by arthritis or weakness in the joint capsule. Lumps resulting from soft tissue or bone are caused by abnormal growth of healthy or unhealthy cells.



There is no universal procedure for removal of hand lumps or tumors. For most lumps and tumors it is usually possible to perform an extensional biopsy, a procedure that removes the lump or tumor in its entirety. These biopsies are typically performed by making an incision overlying the tumor or lump. For some other tumors, it is necessary to do staging with imaging and a limited biopsy prior to complete removal of the mass or lump.
