Synovial cyst: Sometimes a small channel can develop between the deeper levels in the skin which can communicate with an adjacent joint.

If, however, it were to become progressively larger and painful it might be useful to check with an Orthopedic MD ...Read more

Bumps on knuckles: Heberden's nodes are genetic arthritic spurs on the distal finger joints, more common in women (look at mom, nana, or auntie's fingers). Bouchards nodes, affect the proximal knuckle (closest to the palm) and are less common. These are arthritic, but not specifically related to cervical ddd. ...Read more
