Swelling on hand between knuckles, growing in size, skin darkening, tightness. Treatment options?

Yeah hello and thank you. I have swelling just on top of my hand almost between the knuckles, actually right behind my pointing finger and in between the longest middle finger. I have noticed it for a while.. but it is getting larger and darker just in that area. When I wake up this same hand is swollen and tight.. the entire hand for about an hour after i wake up.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
This can be the beginning of artritis or some other subcutaneous lesion. you should do ultrsound to check this. and probably antiinflammatory therapy will be necessary.
Wish you good health. Regards
