    A bone on my left wrist is sticking out, it's like a big bump. But it doesn't really hurt or anything, but I'm worried incase my wrist is dislocated or something.

    I don't remember falling down or anything. A few days ago I was doing weights and both my wrists were quite aching understandably. I dunno if that's it.

    My friend says it might be a cyst or something, so I'm considering whacking my hand with an Argos catalogue.

    First off, dont do that, it aint gonna help. Firstly is it symmetrical? Do you by chance have a bump on the other wrist in the same place? If not, do go see someone about it because it isnt nothing.

    Put it in the microwave for 2 minutes, season with salt and pepper and serve with a light salad dressing. Should sort it out.

    If it doesn't hurt and you can't imagine why you'd have a bone sticking out, may I refer you to NW86's post:—

    That sounds like a ganglion cyst, also known as a Bible bump due to the effective treatment of whacking them with a Bible.

    At least the Bible is useful for something :P

    Anyway, to the OP: Probably isn't a bone, if it isn't your regular wrist-bone lump, but could be a ganglion. Go to the doc, just to get it all checked out.

    I had that a couple of years ago after I bumped it badly. Turns out it was bruised. It went down after 2 weeks or so.
