What Causes Painful Bumps On The Finger Tips?

Can I get Ganglion cysts on my finger tips especially my thumb and ring finger on my right hand? I have been a dental hygienist for 36 years and now am experiencing pain in these two fingers as I grasp my scalers with this hand. I feel a small bump in these areas and it hurts when I palpate it if not ganglion what could it be? Just googled ganglion cyst always pic Web MD first for all medical problems. Thank you Janice

Hi,

It could a rheumatic disease with Heberden's nodules. I suggest you see your doctor for a thorough physical exam.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
