There is a bone growth at the base of my left thumb. The doctor says it is the sesamoid bone which enlarged through overuse (typing?!) in order to protect damage to tendon. I no longer use the thumb in typing but find it hard not to move the joint in day-to-day work. There is no pain, but I don't like it that it is larger than than 3 months ago. Not the size of a pea.
