I’m not sure if I have a Bouchard’s node or Ganglion Cyst.

Hi everyone, I just discover a hard lump on my finger joint yesterday and I went to my nurse practitioner at college to get it looked at as soon as possible. They told me it might be a Ganglion Cyst but she did say so herself she wasn’t an expert in Orthopedics. I just wanted to post here to get more opinions on the matter. From all the pictures I’ve seen so far on Bouchard’s node it appears on both side of the finger but mine is only on one side. There is currently no pain or real stiffness at the joint so far so hopefully it stays that way.
