Yes - Thank you! I have severe pain in my right thumb, I ve gone to an orpho Dr and had carpal tunnel surgery done (also an ongoing issue) , but the thumb pain did not go away, he is now FINALLY sending me for an MRI to see if there s a gromus (?) tumor, but I now feel small nodules in different parts of my thumb

Where exactly in the thumb is your pain. Glomus is no doubt a painful tumor but is usually under the nail and sensitive to cold water.
Glomus is more of a clinical diagnosis rather than diagnosed on MRI.
I would advice you to consult a hand surgeon.
