Pain At Base Of Pinky Finger
I crushed hand two weeks ago. I got it x-rayed, no fracture. Now I have a small painful lump at the base of pinky finger palm side. What could it be?
Painful finger lump:
Could be a ganglion cyst, they develop when there is repetitive stress and a crush injury could be stress enough. Sometimes they go away on their own or can be aspirated,rarely need surgical removal. Could also be tendon partial tear (would not see unless MRI) f/ u w/doc

Hairline fractures of the finger usually will heal fine with splinting. ...Read more
