I have one and it has not gone away.

I am going to phone a hand specialist.

Anyone ever had one?

That's why I was asking.

I only got it since I started plumbing and electrical work.

My husband had one on his wrist Ian, he had it taken off. We always thought he got it from resting his hand a certain way on the desk while he was drawing.

most of my life and have had to deal with it....

I was told I could have it removed but I was also told it it was common for them to come back so I never opted for going under the knife...

I had it lanced once when I was 22 and since then, have taken care of it when it "reared" its ugly head, my self...
