Hi.
The lump on your husband's finger could be a node (Heberden's node).  This is painless and does not affect movement.  Usually, this is associated with other disease conditions like osteoarthritis.
It would be best to have him seen by a rheumatologist for proper evaluation.
Good luck.

I agree. He should see a rheumatologist. I have had a lump (giant cyst) on my right ring finger. I had surgery to remove it TWICE and it came back a 3rd time. I have no idea what causes it to return; however, the cause of it was from a "pin *****" prior to giving blood. When the cotton on my finger was removed, there was a very small lump/swelling. Unfortunately, it grew and grew. Within a year it had to be removed. It grew back a few years later to the point where I had it removed again. It has now been 4 years since my last surgery and it's huge. Good luck in your case:-)

Hi
This is my first posting on here.

About 3 months ago, I got a lump on the knuckle of my right hand ring finger.  Shortly afterwards, I developed a 2nd one just underneath this.

Initially I assumed they were warts so just left them alone.  Now they are slightly painful if I catch them with a cup and the large one on the knuckle looks like it's been caught and has weeped.

I intend to go to the doctor but wondered if anyone knew what they might be?

Erica, the lump could also be a ganglion (in this region of the finger they are often called mucous cyst). They are harmless, but can be a nuisance. As mentioned before, best to be checked just in case

Have a look at this page on hand lumps:

Hope all goes well
