I've had a lump under skin of my left hand for few weeks. It's firm but squishy. Doesn't hurt but hand sometimes hurts. Could it be a fatty deposit?

Need to remove it: It could be any number of diagnoses, including a synovial (join-derived) cyst, a non-synovial (hair follicle) cyst, lipoma (a fatty growth, but rather uncommon on the hands), or even an abscess (a localized infection). I would remove this growth. A dermatologist/dermatologic surgeon or hand surgeon can do this procedure and once it is removed and biopsied you will know the diagnosis as well. ...Read more

I have a blue lump 5mm in diameter at the base of my index finger on my left hand I have had it for around a year but just lately seems more prominent?

A couple of thoughts: My first thought is that this is a thrombosis/blood clot in a digital (finger) vein. It may initially have been painful but after a year, the pain is gone and the blue lump remains. It could also be a discolored ganglion cyst or even a skin tumor including melanoma. You could send us a picture for further help, but your best option would be to have a Dermatologist examine you/it. Good wishes:) ...Read more
