Inflamed tendon or Nodule

I have RA and when I woke up this morning I found a lump on the back of my hand. It is right where the tendon is for my index finger. Can a tendon be so inflamed that it would form a lump under my skin that I can see and feel? Or could this be a nodule? But I am seronegetive RA so I thouhg that getting nodules was less commone then seropostive. Thanks

Re: Inflamed tendon or Nodule

I was diagnosed 7 months ago with RA, fibro and AS. I had a lump, big bump thing, appear on bottom of my left ring finger right on that bony thing located at the bottom of your fingers. I am sure it is a ra nodule but my doctor said no. I now have another lump below on my forearm. I also am having these small bumps appearing all along my forearms but I am also methotrexate so it could be that. But the big bump thing was there before I started the metho treatments. I have looked at RA nodules on the internet, there are photos of them, some are huge but others are small like mine. Oh, yeah, after 7 months it is still here.

When I went to the my GP on Monday he said that it was a Ganglion Cyst and that it was nothing to worry about. Thanks for your reply.
