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.

To diagnose you correctly, I would need to see the "bumps", and have more history. Any fever or sweats? Any history of allergies? joint pains? recent antibiotic use? recent trip to the dentist? family history of connective tissue disorders or autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, or thyroid disease)? Are any of these bumps painful?

Could the arthritic lump on my finger joint be removed?

Yes


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.

Ganglion


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.
