Had heart condition, lump on wrist. Related symptoms?

Hi, this is Glynys. My mother died in 1982 when I was 25 and I never thought to ask her about the lump she had on her wrist . She did have a heart condition. Don t know if that is relevant. It s just one of those things that you wished you asked about but now it s too late. Wonder if you have any ideas. Thank you:)

I don't find any obvious association between the wrist lump and heart condition. First of all we don't know weather she had some congenital heart disease or an acquired disease.
In both the condition a chronic(long standing lump) is uncommon. Do not bother about it.
The commonest lump you get near the wrist is a benign cyst.
good luck

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Lump in the wrist generally has no relevance to the heart.

Rarely a rash may have. Joint itself, if swollen can have a relation (Rheumatic fever)...
Deformities in the hand and wrist in the new born can have heart association.

Nothing to worry.
It has reminded you of your mother / that is all...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
