    Exclamation Small lump on hand...

    About two or three weeks ago I hit the middle knuckle of my right hand on the wall hard (my four month old puppy was peeing inside, I was in a rush to get him outside, and in my rush I hit my hand). It initially hurt and turned black and blue, and there was a lump as well, which went down somewhat after I iced it. Well, the black and blue mark is long gone, but the lump still remains. It doesn't hurt or anything and it isn't a weird color, and my mother says it feels bony (which to my hypochondriac mind, makes me worry that it might be cancer). The lump is pretty small, almost perfectly round, and like I said, painless. Should I be worried? Shouldn't the lump have gone away by now? It couldn't really be cancer, could it? Thanks in advance to all who reply.

    Sometimes, it can take a very long time for injury lumps to go away. I knew a guy who hit his head and had a lump for months. If it gets worse (gets bigger, becomes painful again), then ask a doctor.
