Thanks for your question.
Is the lump painful?
no it is not and never was
ok then this is not ganglion.
for the last 3 years it has been present
Ganglion is usually painful.
Without any other symptoms this is harmless or benign.
Calcification is seen due to the scar tissue presence.
This is likely a fibrous tissue cyst.
Should be removed by a surgeon though.
do you think nothing sinister?
this is not serious.
any cancerous growth would have spread to the wrist bones.
so worried, have been advised to do the operation next week
and nerves also would have been affected.
please do not worry.
surgery is good idea.
But this is not concerning.
A minor procedure.
do you think that if it was anything serious it would have surely spread
during the last three years
the cancer of this type is very aggressive
will not remain quiet for 3 years.
also i saw 2 years ago doctor in Sweden, he mentioned stafilococus or streptococus
that is bacteria.
i did not take it seriously
But infection also would have cause pain and redness
so, infection is not present now.
well --may be
initial infection can trigger the scar tissue formation.
that can form the cyst like this.
i see, thank you very much, but what it could be?
A cyst made of fibrous tissue or scar tissue.
Also had an MRI last week and they could not tell me anything more apart from calcium presents
yes that is good.
any thing serious would have been seen in MRI
Normally MRI shows nasty things?
yes it does very sensitive test
Thank you very much, a bit relief.

can i talk to you?
remember i asked you about inner wrist lump, today it has been removed
and surgeon told that he thinks that could be a cancer. Is it pos to see without a biopsy result?
MRI did not show, Xray did not show, ultrascan did not .
Surgeon said it was a lump on a muscle, prob this nasty thing.
So worried now, can you imagine?
