painful lump on bone under skin on finger joint?

Ganglion

Ganglion_cyst
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.

Knot coming up on inside of hand on middle finger joint painful help?

Probably a ganglion

Open-uri20130905-28922-70khf8
Cyst. Typically come from a joint. Can be very painful. Most hand bumps are benign. Typically can be aspirated with a needle and decompressed or otherwise surgical excised. Used to call them bible beater lesions because the biggest book on the house was the bible and by smacking it with the 'Good Book' caused them to rupture. I do not recommend this though. See an orthopaedist.

It depends of which joint. It may be bony enlargement secondary to osteoarthritis. It may be a synovial cyst. If you are concerned have it evaluated and the hand x rayed.

Not enough info to make any determination of what's going on. A pic would help and a little more detail about the history.

Could the arthritic lump on my finger joint be removed?

Yes

Arthritis
Depending on the location they are usually called Bouchard's or Heberden's nodules. They are rarely of an significance, but are harbingers of joint arthritis. Removing them usually trades a bump for a scar, and recurrence does occur.

What is finger joint replacement?

Finger Implant

Hand_surgery
Arthritic finger joints can be replaced similar to the hip and knee joint replacement surgery. Since we don't walk on our hands, we don't need to have large metal and plastic joint implants. Silicone and tissue joint replacements can be done for the fingers and thumb. If you are having a lot of hand joint pain, I suggest you see a Hand Surgeon to get an opinion on your treatment options.
