Hope someone can help. My mother is 61 and from yesterday, one of her finger has swollen to black and blue up to the first joint. There is a lump underneath the swelling and when she presses it, it will move and it hurts a bit. The swelling subsides in the afternoon and it swells up in the morning when she wakes. Is this serious? I have told her to go to the doctors but being stubborn, she insist on waiting for a 'few' more days to see what happens. I'm concerned that it could be a blood clot or something. Your help and advice will be much appreciated.
