Been playing for about 2.5 years. When I make a fist, a small bump appears somewhere above my trapezoid and trapezium bones. When relaxed, there is no bump.

I had a scaphoid fracture 2 years ago. Don't remember if i had the bump then.

Could this be related to some bad guitar playing technique of mine?

Thank you

Unless you're playing with some positively horrendous technique, odds are no. Still couldn't hurt to get it looked at though.

Prob a cyst (bible bump), if it is you have 3 options, smash it with a book and it will pop it and will go away, have it drained with a needle at the docter, get surgey if they keep coming back

I had one, smashed it with a book, Gone. (hurts a fsking lot >_>

BUT go get it checked it if hurts or anything and are worried.

Probably. Not a bone, for sure.

Cysts are supposed to stay up even when the hand is relaxed, aren't they?

As far as playing techniques go, even after seeing many tutorials, I have observed that A shaped barre chords seem to require some force whereas E shaped ones are damn easy for me. But my strings are old and I have tuned them up a few times since they go out of tune after a fair amount of playing. COULD be because of that,though I'm not sure.

Other than that I don't know.

I just wanted some opinions in case anyone has faced this problem before.

i think the main question is, does it hurt?

if the answer is no: i wouldn't worry about it.
if it starts to hurt, then get it looked at.

Also, don't worry too much about having horrendous technique. Guaranteed there are a lot of brilliant guitarists out there who use technique way worse than you, and probably play better than both of us!
