Swollen Knuckle

Hey Guys,

I've been having a swollen knuckle for about 10 years now. It started out as a small lump, but really covers the whole knuckle right now. Its about halfway down my little finger and looks very bad. The worrying thing is its slowly developing on the fore-finger and the middle finger too. I consulted a couple of doctors in the past. One of them just said its a bite and will go off in a few days. The other one just gave me an ointment that would simply peel off a layer of the skin(Painful, yet ineffective).

There is absolutely no pain. Which is why i did not think of doing anything about it so far. But with more fingers getting affected, I'm getting worried. Please help me with my case. Let me know if there is any medication i can take. Or do i just leave it as it is? What will be the implications of this later on? Just to let you know, I'm 24 now.

Thank you.

Re: Swollen Knuckle

sounds like either fluid on the joint or a ganglion cyst, go to the doctor.
