What is this soft lump in my knuckle?

Good Morning Dr. Herazy,

I have noticed a soft lump/bump/cyst growing in my right knuckle which I ignored for years but it is growing/spreading around the bone/joints of my fingers ; small whitish lumps.  I will see a physician here too. I am 57 years old .



As you describe your situation it does not sound like you have Dupuytren’s contracture.

Your description mentions a growth of some type “in the knuckle” which is much different than the usual way of describing the problem as a nodule, lump or bump in the palm of the hand.   You also note that this lump in the knuckle is spreading around the joints of several fingers which is not a typical description of Dupuytrens.

Good luck with your problem.  Please let me know what you find out.  TRH
