Hard lump on middle finger joint, tingling in hand

I found a small hard lump on the back my middle finger's midle joint that is painless, and hard as part of the bone (not soft or liquidy). It has been there for few weeks. Today I have a strange feeling in my fingers, a little numbness in the fingers and tingly, non-painful funky feeling for more than 3-4 hours that doesn't go away. What could this be and is it serious??

Hi,
The causes of a hard finger lump and numbness could be - infection with Mycobacterium Marinum, Lymphadenitis, Melanoma, Osteoarthritis, Histiocytosis, Granuloma, keratoacanthoma or Malignancy.  Please go for X ray of the finger and biopsy of the lump. Please consult a physician and orthopaedic surgeon  for diagnosis and treatment. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
