Have an extra bone growth in wrist. Why does it pain? Advise?

I feel that I have an extra growth of a bone in my wrist . Whenever I press on it, it hurts. It hurts to make a fist or to move the hand quickly like the other hand. I have been taking medications for it prescribed by the doctor famotidine and iburopen, but it s not helping. The pain feels the same everyday. At times I feel that the bone has grown even more than before. Any word of advice about what I should do?
