Hello, One of the possibilities that is coming to my mind is of a myxoid cyst. A myxoid cyst is a soft nodule and usually occurs near the end of the fingers or toes. Treatment is required when they are painful and consists of cortisone injections, liquid nitrogen and surgery(for large ones).I sincerely suggest you to discuss this possibility with a dermatologist. If the bumps are painful, then the possibility of herpetic whitlow has to be ruled out.
I have a painful cyst that lies under a large vein between my knuckle and first joint of my left hand index finger. Either that or it is an aneurysm. The vein looks like a balloon that is about to pop. Is this a difficult surgery if it is an aneurysm and not a simple cyst?

Hello, This sore on the finger can be an infected myxoid cyst, ganglion cyst or herpetic whitlow. It is a painful viral infection occurring on the fingers or around the fingernails. Herpetic whitlow is caused by infection with the herpes simplex virus (HSV). I sincerely advise you to consult a dermatologist and discuss these possibilities with him. Infected cysts may need excision and drainage or surgical excision.

A mucous or myxoid cyst arises from degeneration in the connective tissue on the top of the last segment of the finger. It may connect with the joint at the end of the finger. A ganglion cyst is a swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. I would suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation for this.

If it's very well circumscribed [like a bump] maybe it is a bite or at worst a cyst coming off of a joint. If it is starting to swell more, or you are having other symptoms, then you should see a dr right away. I have had those before, and I put cortizone on or calamine lotion, which takes down the inflammation. If it's really bad, you can get an injection of cortizone or topical antibiotic from a dermatologist or gp. Hope this helps.... keep us updated on what happened!
I noticed that a small round flatty browth on my finger near joint, if messed with it, it turned reddish for quite some time, otherwise it is normal skin color and feel, did not itch, did not ache. more like a calous, but is round, a very flatty bump, or just flat, but has wrinkles around the round thing. dont know how long it is there. Can it be a cancer? bone spur? or flesh cell over growth?
Hi-- I hit the outside edge between knuckle and first joint of my pinky finger against a hard object about a month ago. (I tried to vigorously shoo my dog out of the kitchen and whacked my hand on the tile counter) It was painful but never showed obvious (to me) sign of breakage. I had inflammation, pain, a small amount of bruising (I don't bruise easily) and it as been tender to the touch ever since.
I have developed a lump in the joint between my thumb and the finger next to it. It appears to be near the joint in the webbing of my thumb and is approx 1cm wide. My thumb is extremely painful if i accidently clip it against something or put any pressure on it. I occasionally get pins and needles in my hand and it may be disturbing the blood circulation. Any assistance is appreciated. It has similar symptons to a ganglion cyst but i am unsure if you can get them in this particular area.
Of course, I've had the usual side effects (dryness, depression, lethargy.) My main problem now is severe joint pain. I lift weights 5x per week. I don't want to stop working out, but my right elbow and both shoulders are killing me! Has anyone had experience with this and can you recommend medicine or treatment for the joint pain? I employ high intensity training (low reps, hight weight) but can change my lifting to lighter weight, with higher weights. But I can not stop lifting.
HELP..... I have this "bump" on the back of the ring finger on the right hand. It is right above the knuckle joint. It is white in the center and has a ring of dark (red) around it. I thought it looked like a planters wart. I bought some wart remover from drug store. After a couple of days when I took the bandage off as per directions. It was white around it and the center was a hole. Didn't have any drainage. Don't remember any strong odor.
When you simply tape the 4th and 5th fingers together the bottom joint of the finger is still mobile. I'm assuming that's why the dr. recommended the splint. Also consider that the 4th and 5th fingers are the most mobileof the 4 fingers with respect to the palm moving. For instance when you make a fist the pointer and middle finger bones in the palm stay in about the same place, but the ring and pinky actually wrap toward the thumb.

Could there be a cyst under the vein or an aneurysm? It is on my lefthand index finger between the knuckle and first joint. I am a 65-year-old woman and did not injure the site.
it is about 1cm long and protrudes from the inner portion of her pinky slightly above the main joint where the finger bents (not the joint by the nail). it is painless and i went online and searched and searched and i'm pretty sure it is a giant-cell tumor, which is supposed to be benign. my question is, do you think she should get it removed or just let it be. the problem is, it seems to be a pretty invasive procedure and my mom would rather just let it be if it is going to be benign.
Just diagnosed with gastritis and Barrett esophagus, have arthritis of hands, knees, hips and back and degeneration in back, have that blister lump on index finger that Dr. Says is my joint blowing out and he wants to do surgery, feel like I hit 60 and started falling apart! I love life and want to live a long life. Any advice ?
A few months ago I was cutting some locusts trees and got poked and a few splinters from the thorns. One of the spots was on the top of my index finger near the first joint. It is now a big bump which does not hurt but looks bad. Could there be a splinter inside this bump and could it be infected?
So today I discovered a small lump, maybe a milimeter or at most two in size, in the center of the joint where my middle finger joins my hand. It is not painful. I am 19, with no history of cancer in the family. I have recently been having aching pains in several areas of my body (mostly groin, chest, and adbomen), though I don't know if it's the bone or the muscles. What could this be? I didn't see any other bone-related forums, so I posted here.

My opinion but any suspicious bump that won't heal should be checked by a Vet. The fact this is on the foot complicates the problem as the dog is on it and irritating it all the time and the skin on a foot can take a long time to heal. You can try soaking and bandaging it but I doubt that will resolve the problem. Best to have it Vet checked especially since it has been there fir so long and it getting worse.
Hi, I'm a 20 year old male and about 3 weeks ago, I noticed two small bumps on the palm side of my index finger. They are about 1mm each and about 1mm apart from each other right where my index finger bends. They are white, contain no fluid, and were painless. They became more pronounced when i would bend the joint. I had somewhat similar bumps on my hand about a year ago and went to a dermatologist because I thought they might be warts.
The irritation/pain is around the front of my knees - around my kneecap area - no one spot I can put my finger on, it seems. After realizing that I couldn't do any decent amount of weight, I tried to do some simple deep knee bends - no weight at all - and my right knee still complained. I rested my knees until they seemed back to normal, then I tred to do something super-light and they acted up again.
The next day he called and said no it's not broken. I have noticed a bump on the inside of the middle joint (facing the middle finger). If I gently touch it and wiggle my finger up and down (painful to do that) I can hear a clicking type noise in that bump area. If I make a fist the joint closest to the nail will not curl under. When I make a fist my finger will not bend down all the way to the palm, middle and joint closest to the nail straight(too painful).
what is a complicated cyst, as opposed to a simple cyst; and what are the chances that this is not a cyst but something else, more serious? Would you recommend further investigations? Thanks in advance.
I also was checked with an ANA screen which was positive before I was diagnosed with Hashi because of the joint pain. Life is like a jig saw puzzle isn't it? My worst joint is my index finger, I don't have full movement anymore.
