I had lymphedema while getting radiation following lumpectomy and removal of 25 axillary nodes (one positive) 13+ years ago. Cuts on my hand do not heal well unless I use medicated band-aids. A few months ago I had a all cut on my forefinger that I let heal naturally( but slowly); but continued to feel itchiness in my palm & finger after it appeared healed. About 2-3 months ago I got another tiny cut on the forefinger & also the skin on my thumb had a small crack. I used the medicated band-aids & they healed fairly quickly. I have noticed a soft, movable, tender lump at the base of my forefinger between it & the middle finger. I believe the lump had been hard at one time. I still have a little palm itching. I'm beginning to think that this may be lymph. Has anyone experienced this?
