Wrist area injury question.

To start off, I am waiting on MRI results on my wrist. Now to my injury. Approximately 4 months ago, after a workout, I had some pain in the back of my right wrist. Its about a inch before you get to the wrist line. Its on the thumb side. A lump has formed. I am able to do pullups with palms facing me, but thats it. If I try and pull my arm toward me against any resistance (aside from palm facing away) I have to stop. The doc thinks its a torn ligament or something that has to do with what he called the cross sectional plain. Has anyone ever experienced an injury like this? To give a little more detail. I went musky fishing last month. After a couple hours I had to stop due to my wrist being swollen, and unable to cast the heavy pole and lure. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Wrist area injury question.

It's not a ganglion cyst? Could be torn ligament I guess.

If it was a little more distal I'd say it could be DeQuervains or something..

Kinda hard to tell without pictures?

You may have to wait for the MRI for confirmation.
