Thanks for the query.

That knot can be rheumatoid nodule.
It is a common finding in RA.

It has its own course and heals slowly.
No treatment is required.

If you dont mind, Is it possible for you to upload a photograph of the lesion, if it is visible on the skin surface.

This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.

Thank you
