Brief Answer:
Glomus tumor

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query,
you might have developed a glomus tumor.
It is a deep seated tumor of nail and is very painful.

The treatment is surgical removal of nail plate followed by excision of tumor.
Dont worry the nail plate will regenerate in a month.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Thank you
