Resolved Question:

I have a hard lump/bump under the skin on the palm of my left hand under the ring finger. It seemed to appear out of nowhere. It is the size of a thumbtack and round. It hurts when you touch it, but I can still use my hand fine. About a month ago something caught on my ring and jerked that finger pretty hard, but this was a month ago. I also played football with my son, but it didn't hurt right after that either. Any ideas on what this could be?

This could be the beginning of what is called a Dupuytren's Contracture.
