I have a giant, painful lump at the base of my hand between the outside edge of my palm, and the heel of my thumb.

Is that random enough?

Unless you bang it on something. I have one on my right thumb. Right at the crease of the first knuckle. It's finally receding after about 2 months. Almost gone now.

Hmmm...a friend of mine in hs had one on her shin and she used to squish it all around and say how it didn't hurt. That's my only experience with them though, so there you go.

I had what one Dr. called a ganglion cyst, but the VA operated on my wrist and put me out of commission for about 6 weeks. One Dr. tried to push it back in and it hurt like hell. OUCH!!!

Why hell no! Doctors cost money, woman!

Two reasons I haven't went to the doc yet:

1) My regular doc is currently being investigated in some kind of Medicare fraud case. He was served some search warrants for his offices, and the gym next door, which is in the building he owns. I'm not sure why they searched the gym, maybe he owns that, too.

2) I'm a cheap bastard.

If the hand falls off, I'll get it checked out.

Really, I was just bitching at random. It doesn't bother me unless I mess with it. Or bump it. Or touch it.

It's not affecting (?) my, uh -ahem- schedule, or anything.

Also, I thought those ganglion thingies were mostly on the back of the hand.

I've heard those "Here, lay your hand flat on this desk.", WHAM!-type stories before. If I think that's what it is, I'll just pound it myself.

I can hear ya already..."Do you have experience pounding it yourself?"

Uh, yes, yes I do.

Had one of those on my left hand for years, sometimes painful but mostly just there. Even had surgery set up, but when I read there's 50% chance it'll come back, I cancelled. When I retired I quit wearing a watch and it went away within a month.

The watch had a Speidel twist-o-flex band which was tight enough the watch wouldn't move around and get caught on something while working, but it wasn't constrictive. It most certainly could be a coincidence, just retiring may have done it.

I think the one on my thumb came from gripping my throttle.

On my motorcycle.
