Finger Joint Lump: This requires an exam to determine if it is on the top (wrist side) or palm side of the hand. Fixation or movement with hand open/close maneuver is also important. If it is on the top it is more likely related to an injury or poorly healed fracture; however there are other possibilities.

As a general rule folks under thiry should not have osteoarthritis. Finger pain and a lump at a 3rd knuckle could be another form of arthritis. Blood tests and x rays seem like a place to start. Other causes of hand lumps also exist. See your provider. ...Read more

Having a pain in the joint of my left hand of the middle finger?
