I hit my hand hard a few weeks ago. I have a sunken knuckle and a hard lump palm side of my index finger. Could this be a tendon?

I hit my hand hard a few weeks ago. I have a sunken knuckle and a hard lump palm side of my index finger. Could this be a tendon?

Hard to say.: A sunken knuckle often means a "boxer's fracture." Get checked to see. Only an x-ray can determine of this is more than a tendon injury. If you have a loss of finger function, you may have also damaged your tendon too, and this may need to be repaired to prevent permanent damage. Get seen! ...Read more

The more common: Thing in your age range is a small retinacular cust or ganglion, a fluid filled sac that comes off the joint or tendon sheath and if it is it is harmless except for the mechanical discomfort it causes.

I crushed hand two weeks ago. I got it x-rayed, no fracture. Now I have a small painful lump at the base of pinky finger palm side. What could it be?

Painful finger lump: Could be a ganglion cyst, they develop when there is repetitive stress and a crush injury could be stress enough. Sometimes they go away on their own or can be aspirated, rarely need surgical removal. Could also be tendon partial tear (would not see unless MRI) f/ u

This is one of those things we cannot give you and exact diagnosis unless we can see and palpate the lumps. I think a trip to the local NHS doc is in the offing? Thanks ...Read more

On the muscle of my neck on lefted hand side I got a lump pop out of my muscle it hard been there for 4days now what could it be

On the muscle of my neck on lefted hand side I got a lump pop out of my muscle it hard been there for 4days now what could it be

Uncertain: The description of where this lump is, is not specific enough to be sure. Is it on the side, front or back? It could be a lymph node that is enlarged due to infection, but if it is really from the muscle, and your neck is stiff or sore, then some heat and massage, stretching etc should help to clear the 'knot'. If more appear & continue see your doctor. ...Read more

Lipoma: Often times these are lipomas, which are simply benign masses of fatty tissue. Very rarely do lipomas cause any problems - in rare cases, there may be persistent surrounding inflammation which leads a patient to ask for removal of the lipoma.
