Lump on thumb bone?

Physical Examination

Fingers
A lump on the thumb bone is impossible to diagnose without the key component of any diagnosis: the physical examination. Contact your primary care physician today and get the lump examined. Your doctor will also take a medical history to gain additional information. Additional studies may be ordered, but there is no substitute for the physical examination.

Does trigger thumb hurt?

Yes

Extremity-upper-hand-thumb
The triggering or clicking is caused by some swelling of the tendon as it tries to slide through a fascial pulley or tube. If the swelling is severe enough, it can cause the finger to get stuck in a flexed position and this can be painful to straighten out. You can try a splint, anti-inflammatory medication or a cortisone injection to treat this.
