Brief Answer:
Can you provide an image for review?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed this information fully. It seems suggestive of arthritis/inflammation of the joint. Because of the lump, I must make sure it doesn’t suggest an infection rather. To help make the difference, I will need to obtain an image and review. Also, I will like to know if both writs/hands are affected or just one of them. With images, I will be able to provide a more personalized and helpful response to you.

To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
