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.
