Volley ball player, wrist hurt during play, ganglion cyst, blood vessel popped, persisting tenderness, swelling. What should be done?

Hi. Im a volleyball player and take hundreds of passes everyday. Yesterday my wrist hurt and I look down and it looked like I had a ganglion cyst . I kept playing even though it hurt every time the ball touched it. At the end of practice it looked like I popped a blood vessel . But I woke up this morning and it is still very tender and swollen and darker than yesterday. What to do?

Hello. Welcome to hcm.
It appears that you have sprained your ligaments which has caused blood to accumulate. There can also be a associated fracture.
I advice you to visit ER and get x ray done. If no fracture is seen and joint normal,then you need to apply crepe bandage for 4-6 weeks and take rest. Repeated trauma is dangerous for ligament as will become weak.
All the best
