Question: Hello, My name is Vasilije and I am a 19 years old guy. I have had for quiet some time now(3-4 years maybe more) these unusual swellings on my hand fingers. I have been to dermatologists and various types of doctors and they really dont know what causes it. They checked my blood, x-ray, mr scanner and the results came fine and on the x-ray it didnt show any kind of ossification or anything like that. Theres just swellings that are a bit dry, not really to soft but then again not hard.Idk if its really slowly getting worse(meaning the swellings getting bigger) or maybe i am imaganing, but the fact is they are there. Doctors told me they are not sure what it is but doesnt seem to be dangerous so I should be fine. Also if i scratch the middle finger on my right hand(the one thats swollen the most) i feel like my finger goes numb or smth like that for a sec , then it goes back to normal feeling(its not that they are itching me its just i sometimes scratch it for no reason). Ik this is prob not the place to ask for help in my situation as u would prob have to examine it yourself to get the idea of what it might be. I came here just for an advice of what should i do because the whole doctors excursion was about 2 years ago and i just said welp i give up. But then again any kinda of advice would be nice. Thanks in advance!

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

Will you be able to share your reports especially any clinical pictures of the swelling and MRI scan report please?

The best method to find out the cause is these swellings can be a biopsy in some instances but once we know it's is not a blood vessel tumour, a biopsy could be planned. This was we have a tissue diagnosis to help find out what it is which is much more detailed than a scan alone.

A Pathologist, Dermatologist or Surgeon can perform a biopsy as needed.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
