My mother started getting ball sized lumps in her hands a few years ago. They are hard and painful but not attached to the bone. She has had them removed twice already and most of them grow back and then more form. She is even noticing one start on her nose. Doctors said it could be Garnuloma Annulare but the images don't add up to what she has. It is only a lump under her skin that is extremely painful to touch. She compares the feeling to a brush burn at times. She is on a medication so doctors can find out if it is RA or Lupas but none of that is answering her question as to what the lumps are. They are effecting her life in many negative ways and I just want to help her because the doctors around here seem to continually blow it off as nothing. She even mentioned once getting an x-ray done of her hand and on both of her ring fingers it showed a circle on the two fingers and the doctor didn't know what that meant. If anyone has any answers I would be so grateful to hear anything.
