Question Bump on pinky finger joint

Hi All,

Just wanted to know what you all think of this. About 2 weeks ago, I noticed a small bump on my left pinky finger joint. It does not hurt when its left alone, however if pressure is applied, it hurts a bit. There is no scarring or a bruise or anything of the sorts.

I did go to the doctor, and he said it most likely a joing swelling. I have an appt. to get an x-ray done on that finger. He also did mention that it could be a cyst in my finger, and if so a shot of cortizone would need to be administered to shrink the cyst.

If anyone can share some light on what this is or related experiences, that would be great! Thx again!

Re: Bump on pinky finger joint

Could also be Herberdons (sp)knob, it tends to go with osteoarthritis, if it is the joint nearest your fingernail, the middle joint is bouchards (sp)knob. They can hurt like heck for long periods of time and then not hurt a bit, but the knob stays, I have a couple on both hands, also have osteo in both hands. I'm surprised the Dr didn't suggest that.
