Hard lump on thumb print area. What is this lump?

I have a hard lump on my thumb print area and I can see little white spots under the skin (two) . A few months ago I grabbed a hot pot from the oven and remember the thumb hurting after that. I am not sure if the lump was there prior to the burn incident. What could this be? Sometimes it hurts when I try to grab something, other times not so much.

Greetings of the day
It could be due to fibrosis following burn. If the swelling is more symptomatic then Consult your Surgeon.
Take care
