Re: why have i developed a lump on the side of my index finger

Which side and where on the finger? A lump on the finger where you might hold a pen or pencil might be nothing more than a callus but a lump down by the side of the fingernail might be a wart forming. If it's near a joint, it could be a bump related to arthritis. Both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis have finger bumps as a diagnostic feature. I had a small tumor develop on my left index finger that turned out to be a calcified piece of tissue that had been there since before birth (hemangioma). Harmless but bothersome since I used my hands for my job.

Many, many possibilities but where it is may give more clues. Can you describe where it is and what it looks like more thoroughly?

Is it open and does it bleed?
