Hand tumors, whether benign or malignant, can be painful and cause limited motion in the hand. Darrell L. Henderson, MD provides treatment to patients in Lafayette, LA, who suffer from hand tumors.

What is a Hand Tumor?

Hand tumors are caused by a variety of conditions, including injuries, and may appear on any part of your hand. Some of the most common hand tumors are warts, moles, giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath, ganglion cysts, and epidermal inclusions.

How Do I Know If I Have a Hand Tumor?

Although the majority of hand tumors evaluated by us are benign, it is nonetheless important to seek immediate medical consultation so the growth can be evaluated. Symptoms of hand tumors include visible growths on top of the skin or painful lumps underneath the skin.

Hand Tumor Procedure

Surgical removal of hand tumors is often recommended by our physicians in Lafayette because it offers a definitive treatment with the lowest possibility of recurrence. If the tumor is determined to be cystic, fine needle aspiration may also be considered as a treatment method. Your surgeon will recommend the most appropriate course of action and explain all of the benefits and risks of a hand tumor procedure with you during your initial consultation.

Hand Tumor Recovery

Darrell L. Henderson, MD strongly recommends that patients with hand tumors consult with a surgeon prior to making treatment decisions. Although hand tumors are most likely benign, they can interfere with functioning as they increase in size. Patients who decide not to seek treatment should watch the area carefully and have any changes re-evaluated.
