Lump on knuckle joint

Common Questions and Answers about Lump on knuckle joint

lump

I have done the same on my knuckle on my middle finger, got the thorn out but it's still red and quite painful, not sure if the thorn touched the bone,not sure how long to leave it before I seek help.
Also like my finger has sunk an inch downwards while my other fingers stay normal. And the knuckle above my pinky has looked deformed and raised it up. On the side of my hand I have a lump; a bone sticking on the side. I still feel it, but it doesn't move around. I feel like the bone attached to my finger went downwards, while my knuckle went upwards. Hard to explain since my age difference is different from the rest of you expert parents.
Hi This is my first posting on here. About 3 months ago, I got a lump on the knuckle of my right hand ring finger. Shortly afterwards, I developed a 2nd one just underneath this. Initially I assumed they were warts so just left them alone. Now they are slightly painful if I catch them with a cup and the large one on the knuckle looks like it's been caught and has weeped. I intend to go to the doctor but wondered if anyone knew what they might be?
i have a hard cyst like bump on top of my middle knuckle on pointer finger it seems attatched but not sure its a little painful to bend at that joint its getting bigger each time it comes back this is the third time i've just ignored it now i'm getting nervous since father had passed away of cancer. I'm 25 y/o female and have had no trauma to that finger .
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. Wasn't sure if that was good or not so I didn't use it again. Now its even more painful.
I can't grasp things without it hurting, steering my car, etc. I see that the palm, right at the knuckle is swollen and that there is a hard bulge present that is not on my other hand. What could be the cause? Bone fragment? Tendon? Cyst??? I can't imagine it being a cyst as it was the result of a fall. It's odd that there is such a large lump. It's not in my dominant hand so that's a good thing. I'm considering seeing someone but feel a bit foolish cause it's not a huge bother.
It's about 5 weeks post-op, and I've noticed that at one end of the scar, which runs along the length of the outside of my hand, there is a large lump under the skin that has not gone away. It's right beside my knuckle, pretty much where the surgical site was. It's not rock hard, but stiff. I can squeeze it and squish it, but it's firm to the touch. I'm almost 100% sure it's scar tissue. But my question is this: will it go away on its own?
Hi, You've probably developed a bone spur on that joint - I had the same thing on my ring finger. There's another one like it on my pinkie but it's not bad enough to do anything about yet. At some point, the tendon starts snapping back and forth across that bone protrusion and it's EXTREMELY painful. An orthopedic surgeon can do outpatient surgery to shave off the bone spur and relieve the pain. In the mean time you can splint the finger to keep the pain to a minimum.
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.

on my hand it is between first didgit nd middle finger on the area closest to first knuckle on middle finger, I am guessing its a cyst of some sort . It is becoming increasingly painful, no trauma was preceding this. I am just recovering from an anterior cervical discectomy w grafting and fusion and cant handle toughts of another surgery, Do you think this could be dealt with at a urgent care clinic? I had a cyst removed 15 years or so ago from oppisite hand at a clinic.
Last year I had a mild sprain on middle finger on soft tissue/pip joint which I did not splint/buddy taped.In time the sprain healed ok, in august this year I noticed a small rubbery lump on the side of the finger (near pip joint/towards the ring finger). I rubbed the lump&stretched the finger which caused the swelling&possibly reinjury.
The doctor said there could be a crack in the joint above the knuckle and slightly towards the side. She splinted it and suggested follow up with the family doctor. I did see him, he took an xray and said yes it is cracked but suggested I use buddy tape and move the finger. 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).
My gums are infected, I have a sinus infection, my throat's a little sore, I had an infected nail, and I have these weird sores on my hand (one on my wrist, one on my knuckle.) My teeth ache all the time (maybe from teeth grinding) and I never feel like leaving my room anymore. My arm has this weird muscle ache, and I feel too weak to lift heavy things or go up more than one flight of stairs. My back has been hurting a lot. I've developed this awful pain (kind of like dull but stabbing?
They don't come on the palmar surface of my fingers, just the sides and tops... and never on the back of the hand, only just to the joint where the finger meets the hand (MCP joint). They measure between ~2mm and ~8mm in size (usually 3-4mm), are red and slightly raised, and aren't filled with fluid. Clumping around the joints is more likely than on the shaft of the phalanges. They're painful (well... uncomfortable) to touch or rub, and usually disappear within a couple of weeks.
In hindsight I probably should have consulted a doctor afterwards, but did not mind having a small scar on that joint. 2 and a half months later the cut is healed but a relatively large bump has formed underneath the scar on the joint. I do not particularly care about the scar itself, but this bump is driving me crazy. To make matters worse whenever I flex the previously injured finger in all the way the index finger begins to hurt.
2 on middle (1 below upper joint, index side; other palm-side knucklemost section); 1 palm below pinky knuckle. Small; size varies, but ca. sm. letter "o". Raised but to tell need to see in profile vs. from above. Over time recede & a flesh-colored (fluid-filled?) center becomes more noticeable. Don't itch. In early stage if I touched one directly, even by accident, I felt a sharp jolt of pain, strong but not staggering.
I also have a small pea size hard lump on my hand just below the lowest joint on that finger. Not sure if this is at all related. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Hi, This happened to me 2 years ago and I had surgery to repair the tear. However, the ligament snapped recently and I had swelling on top of my knuckle and at the side, whicg sounds similar to you, I have just had surgery again to repair the ligament, have the swelling cut away and I have also had the joint wired for 6 weeks to prevent me from moving it. I would advise that you try to get another opinion. Do not leave it as it will not get better and if anything it will only get worse.

He gave me an injection of cortisone into the lump on the most painful wrist and although I still have this lump the pain is gone. I'm using wrist braces on both hands now and they appear to have helped the other wrist.
I recently shook hands with someone and felt an excruiating pain as if the tendon or a ligament burst near the mid knuckle or joint on the underside of my right middle finger. It produced a sharp pain and then a noticeable swelling on the bottom of that finger. I applied ice when I got home and the swelling subsided. Since then whenever I shake hands or grasp something tightly the same thing happens.
It's now been just over a week and it I thought it was healing well but after the swelling went down I'm still left with a lump on one side. It's pretty solid as if it might be bone. Is this likely? If it's bone, how does it heal? Am I likely to be permanently lumpy or could it still recede?
Around the first week of the injury I noticed a lump on the inside of the middle joint (facing the middle finger) which isn't visible to the eye only by touch), clicking type sound when I move the finger up and down, pins n' needles sensations in this area and radiating into the hand/wrist, pain when bending the finger. I did have physical therapy on this finger for four months. However I still have all the symptoms listed above and they haven't improved.
) history to ever have a breast cancer tumor on her left ring finger, on the backside of the first knuckle behind her fingernail. She had to have the first knuckle on that finger removed. Come to find out, that tumor was a sign that the cancer had metastasized. She never stood a chance. This was her 2nd bout with breast cancer. Her 1st was when/right after I was born. She lived 25 more years, only having had a radical mastectomy. She never had chemo then.
I was still suffering daily and had to wait for around 3 months to see the Rheumatologist things were so bad with pain jumping from joint to joint and now the knuckle on my left hand would some days swell up and look sorta purple/red my wrist is bad now too and i have to wear a splint to rest it when I'm at work,I also have a lump on my right middle finger which my Doctor referred me to an Ortho surgeon about and I am having surgery to temove this in a few weeks time it's totally painless but v
3200 and im waiting on new blood results. 1. Fatigue for the last 2-3 years 2. Restless Sleep. Never seem to get a good nights sleep, always wake up during the night. Feels like I never get to a deep sleep and never wake up feeling rested or refreshed. Takes me about an hour to dig up the strength and motivation just to get out of bed. 3. High levels of Stress for number of years. 4. Terrible long-term and short-term memory, total inability to multi-task – all worse in the last 1-2years.
It usually happens on the palm side of various fingers, but in April, I had one rupture on my knuckle. I'm very interested in any comments.
Just make sure your therapist doesn't push all your scar tissue into one spot like mine did. I have a lump on my wrist of scar tissue. Any ways, let us know how things are going. Oh yeah I had a few questions. Your original surgery for the small Tfcc but then you had more surgeries, what were those surgeries if you don't mind me asking?
