Very hard fleshy bump seen in palm, itchy, causing discomfort. What should I do?

I have a few tiny very very hard flesh colored bumps on the palm of my hand . Sometimes I don t feel any kind of discomfort, but occasionally they get mildly itchy. I have gotten these very infrequently throughout my adult life(I am currently 42) and i usually picked them off(I m a picker ) and then that would be the end of it for a long while. But, now these particular ones keep growing won t go away this time and I have had them for almost a year.

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.

It is hard to say what it is without seeing it,but it can be caused by infectious disease, allergies or benign skin lesions. YOu should see dermatologist and do further tests or biopsy to establish right diagnosis. Then it can be managed on right way by surgical removal, topical treatment or cryotherapy.

Wish you good health. Regards
