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

See a doc!: You don't say exactly where on your hand the lump is. However, this sounds like it may be Dupuytren's contracture, a thickening and shortening of the tendons in the palm of the hand. Whether this is what it is, or something else, you need to see a doc and get evaluated: likely a hand surgeon. But you may see your PCP first, who can tell you what specialist would be best to see, after an exam. ...Read more

I have a lump on the side of my left hand, just where your thumb starts on my left hand. It's been there for over 2 months, and causes severe pain?

Often they go away on their own. Often they have no symptoms, but can have pain and discomfort. Usually observed but can be injected with a steroid and if complicated, they are surgically removed. Questions? See your pcp or hand surgeon. ...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
