Thanks for posting on this forum,

It would have been good if I could lay eyes on the bumps you are obviously worried about so that I could try to determine the possible cause for it. Is it possible to get a pic? Bumps on the knuckles with the feeling of bruising could be due to multiple cellulitis or arthritis (early stage even though not very specific). They could be cysts formed there too.
If you are generally healthy and have no particular family medical history. You may apply antiinflammatory cream (topical) on it and see if it gets better. If it persist, then I suggest you XXXXXXX a doctor to take a close look at it and examine it.

Hope this helps you
