Bruise on knuckles after hand got hurt. Lump has formed and painful. What is it?

A day or two ago I must have hit my hand against something and a bruise formed between my knuckles between the index and middle finger . Since I m on Plavex, it bruised rather badly. Now, after two days, a small peas sized lump has formed in that area (bruising has subsided), and it s a little painful to the touch. Any guess as to what it is? THANKS
