Intermittent wrist pain, hard bump, non-movable, painful

Hi, I have a pain in my wrist that comes and goes away. It is only visible when I bend my wrist. It is not on the top of my wrist but in the middle between the wrist and arm , where they both meet. I thought it is a ganglion cyst , the bump is very hard, it does not move, and hurts on one side where it touches the bone of an index finger and only when I bend my hand . When my hand is flat, theri is no bump, even when I touch that place it does not hurt. I had this problem for 6 or 7 years and now im 22.

Thanks for writing to us.
If there is a visible swelling in the area then ganglion is likely. The other possibility is of an inflammation of the tendons in the area. A physical examination by an orthopedician is necessary to differentiate and to initiate proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
