Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
You probably have an inflammatory process. An X-ray of the finger should be taken. Also it is possible that there is a clot in the vein and it is thrombosed. This should be tested by a color dopplar. Rheumatoid arthritis is another possibility to be ruled out. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
Take care!
