Thanks for posting your query.

I have gone through the images provided. These raised large dots (nodules) over middle and ring finger seems to be the part of palmar fibromatosis( Duuytren's disease).
This condition often starts with nodules in the palm of the hand . It usually progresses very slowly and may not become troublesome for years ( as in your case).
If your nodules are painful, steroid injection in the nodule may help to relieve the pain.

Hope this will helps you. Feel free to ask if you have any further query.
