I have noticed that the wrist bone in my right side - the ball

Customer Question

I have noticed that the wrist bone in my right side - the ball at the side of my wrist is more protruding and larger than my right. I have a bit of a health anxiety but I'm worried it may be bone cancer or a tumour in the wrist as my wrist is a bit stiff. I'm 42 and female. Can you help please - I'm really worried.
