Bump on Thumb

5918188?1279289258
I got a bump on my thumb right by the nail... Its been there about a month and doesn't seem to be getting any better.  I have hit it before and it bleeds a lot and is hard to make it stop

Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be ganglion, digital myxoid cyst, rheumatoid nodule, Heberden's node or some benign vascular growth. A biopsy and culture should be done to rule out these conditions and confirm a diagnosis. Treatment is decided thereafter.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
