There : There could be a new injury or an old one between the joints is a very vague description' the lump may be secondary to inflammtion from an injury or a sign of chronic swelling from an old injury ie it could be an old ligament, injury and old fracture of a bone such as the scaphoid. It could be arthritis. Its too hard to tell based upon the story. One common problem is a ganglion which are not typiically painful when they are large. Tendinitis or gout can be very painful at times and can prsent with a lump form swelling as well it sounds like you need to see a hand surgeon and be evaluated and get some xrays.
