hard lumps on fingers

trisher Member Posts: 9,263

I wonder if you can help me please.

I have arthur in my hands and wrists as well as a lot more places.

Yesterday I noticed a lumps on two of my fingers. They are both on the middle joints of my fingers.

They are red and swollen and the pain seems to go down to the knuckles which are also painful, to my wrist. It seems to be making the other side of my fingers hurt as well down to the palm of my hands.

It is not like the swelling I have had before. When I try to touch them, it makes me jump with pain. They also are hard lumps.

Could it just be something that happens and it will go away. I'm on house calls so I really don't want to waste the doctors time.

Thank you

Trisher xx

    Hi Trisher,

    I am so sorry to hear of the painful lumps you are experiencing on your hands, as we are not medically trained we cannot possibly explain what this is. As you are experiencing pain it really would be worth exploring this further with your doctor and asking for a referral to a hand specialist.

    I hope that helps,
    Best Wishes
