Hello, While it is not certain what causes hand tumors and cysts, some factors are known to increase risk of incidence: Exposure to radiation,Arthritis,Obesity,Smoking,Poor nutrition. Close visual examination by an experienced physician and a review of patient history are usually all that is needed to diagnose hand tumors or cysts. Sometimes an X-ray may be recommended to eliminate other possible conditions.consult general surgeon..
