We have been to a hand specialist and he has guessed that the lining of the tendons is inflamed. The palm has what appears to be a knot in it. My son is a fair skinned red head. The knot is also blue in tint. It gets larger and smaller at different times. He can not participate in sports comfortably as the the can be intense when his palm is hit. I want to be able to help him but no one in my area seems to have a clue. This condition has exsisted for well over a year.
Please help point me in the right direction.
