Bruised painful bump on the wrist. Could this be due to the overuse of laptop?

Hi I have a red/purple bump/ bruise looking spot on my right wrist and when I touch it it is quite painful. I use my right hand while using the laptop and I m on my laptop all day, everyday. I have noticed some pain in my right wrist area while using the laptop for extended periods of time before so do you think this could be related to that? And is it serious? Thanks
