Symptoms may include the presence of a small lump, pain in the palm, swelling
a catching or popping sensation in the finger
or thumb joints.
If symptoms are mild, resting the finger may be enough to resolve the problem. Over-the-counter pain medications can be used to relieve the pain. Splints are sometimes used to rest the finger.
A physician may choose to inject a corticosteroid. Sometimes, the improvement is temporary and more than one injection may be needed.
