Tumor: This is probably a glomus tumor but could be one of the other painful tumors. See your dermatologist for treatment and evaluation.

Ganglion: This sounds like a ganglion cyst also known as a retinacular cyst. This is a fluid filled sac that comes from the tendons that bend down the fingers. To confirm the diagnosis i would recommend trying to remove the fluid with a needle. These usually go away, sometimes they require surgery to remove.

Ganglion cyst: This may be a ganglion cyst or a synovial cyst related to the tendon in the finger or the tendon sheath in the finger. Either way it can be treated with surgical excision. Operation is simple and short.
