Hi there,

I have a lump in my thumbnail which is quite large. It's a horizontal raised bump about half a centimeter tall and 1.5 centimetres long. It doesn't really hurt much until you press it a bit and then it aches a little. It's hard rather than soft. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Has there been injury to this finger?

Personally I would get this looked at by a qualified physician.

Nah, don't think I knocked it. Will go to the doctor then, thanks for your help!
