Why is there a hard bump below my ring finger? (photo)Hand Surgery Skin, Hair & Nails
There’s a pea-sized bump under the ring finger on my right hand, which can be felt when I have my palm stretched open. While it is not painful, it is hard and it feels like a protruding bone. I've never had hand surgery before. What are possible causes of this bump, and do I need treatment for it?
From the photo, there is no obvious lump seen. This lump is likely to be located deeper beneath the skin. Some possibilities include an underlying cyst, swelling of the tendon sheath, or ganglion.
