The scaphoid is one of the small carpal bones located in the first row of carpal bones, on the thumb side of the hand. This can be triggered by trauma e.g. falling onto an outstretched hand or a direct blow. Occasionally stress fractures can occur but these are generally in high level athletes e.g. gymnasts and shot-putters.
