Well about a couple of months ago I noticed a bump in the inner top of my index finger. Does that makes any sense? Well it has been getting bigger. It feels hard and it's like a small beebe in my finger. I can move it up and down it's weird. Well it bothers me sometimes. I am just curious to know what it is and how it came about. I need to go see my doctor about it. Thanks for your time.

The only thing I could think of would be either a callus or a bone spur...But neither of those would "move up and down". So I guess I can't help you, sorry. But if the bump is bothering you then you should definitely go to the doctor. Maybe he could remove it for you?

What about a cartilidge or calcium build up?

My friend had something similar on her leg.. But hers was huge, it got to the size of a softball and it moved around too. Eventually, she had it removed. I can't remember if hers was cartlidge or a calcium build up.. I'm thinking hers was cartlidge.. But yours sounds more like a calcium build up.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be osteophyte or cystic lesion. I would suggest you to have xray of hand to evaluate it.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
