Have a bump under my skin at base of middle finger. Started th size of a BB has gotten bigger nd hurts. Any ideas?

They can be removed, but often will resolve all by themselves (I had one in the exact same place, disappeared after a year). ...Read more

It may be best to get it examined, so that the doctor gets the texture and feel of it. ...Read more
