Hard dark pimple like lump between middle and index finger, pain on pressing. Causes?

I have an unusually hard dark pimple like lump between my middle finger and index fingers. I noticed it a few weeks ago and it has not gone away. It has not increased in size and only hurts when I press against it. I do use lotion on my hands and have been for many years, but nothing like this has ever occured before. What could it be?

Hi ,

This looks like a palmar wart.This is a viral infection of skin.
You may need to see a dermatologist to get it removed.

Thanks for writing to us.

The best thing to do is to have yourself examined by a doctor.
Those lumps could just be one of the more common non-cancerous conditions like ganglion cysts, or warts. Infection is also a common cause of swollen lumps in the fingers. There are so many possibilities as to what those lumps might be, and it's really hard for anyone to tell you with any certainty what those lumps are without having actually seen them.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
