I have a large malformation on the right side of my middle finger of my right hand. It was very small and practically unnoticeable when I was much younger. It has grown and expanded to the tip of my finger and down to the middle joint. It continues to grow, yet slowly. The colors are baby blue to a deep purple. It swells consistently several times a day and is sometimes even painful. There is a prominent pulse when I lay my hand over it. It tends to swell and contract depending on temperature and position of my hand. I've researched over and over and the results I find usually can point me in more than one direction.
