The lump you describe is probably the "epitrochlear" lymph node or nodes that fight infection in the last 2 or 3 fingers and that part of the palm. Anything there??? If not..... ...Read more

See a derm: If it has been there for a long time and it has not undergone any changes and it's not painful then in all probability it is a non-worrisome lesion.
