The Lump On The Knuckle Of The Middle Finger Of The Left Hand Feels Painful When Pressed?
Doctor, this afternoon I just realized that on the middle finger segment of my left hand there is a lump, but I can still do my activities, it’s just that when the lump is accidentally touched or pressed during activity it hurts, it’s just that the lump is not perfectly round u0026amp; camouflage is not reddish in color. Please explain, is it dangerous or not? Thanks.
Lumps on the fingers can come from the skin, bone, muscle, mass, or an inflammatory process. Some of the possible causes of lumps on the fingers include:
Skin infections: pimples, boils
Since when did the bumps appear? Can it be moved? All forms of lumps should be examined directly by a doctor so that the cause can be ascertained. The doctor will perform an examination to determine the mobility and size of the lump and then carry out supporting examinations if necessary, for example with x-rays, CT scans, MRI, blood tests, and biopsy to confirm the cause and type of lump. Once the cause is identified, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment for the patient. Treatment can be with drugs or surgery according to the cause of the lump.
In the meantime, you should not squeeze the lump and if it feels painful, you can compress the lump with warm water. If the lump gets bigger or becomes bleeding easily, you should see a doctor directly so you can find out the cause and so that you can be given proper treatment.
Thank you and hope it helps,
