BB-like lump on top of knuckle

I've suddenly developed a lump on the top left side of the knuckle of my left index finger. The shape, size and hardness are like a bb under the skin of my knuckle, but it seems to be attached to the knuckle, not free moving. There's some mild soreness to the touch or when I bend the knuckle, but not otherwise. Because I'm solidly right-handed, this finger doesn't get a lot of use, and I don't recall any events that might have induced an injury. It just appeared spontaneously (or at least I just discovered it without being able to relate it to anything). I know this complaint is nothing compared to some of the concerns I see reported here, but I'm curious if this rings a bell with anyone. Thanks for any info you might offer.

Re: BB-like lump on top of knuckle

my fiance has what sounds like that on the top of his hand, just below the knuckles, his is probably about the size of a large marble. he went to the doctors, she said that he had to just wait it out, that in the old days, they use to take heavy books and slam it down on the lump to get rid of it. ugh
