Brief Answer:
Can be ganglion or bursitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
A grape size swelling on the medial side of the wrist can be due to a ganglion or bursitis. A mild pain killer with rest to the wrist and using an elastic brace will help. You can consult an orthopedician and get an X-ray don to rule out any bony abnormality. Do start with stronger prescription medicines in case over the counter drugs re not helpful.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
