  • Sounds like you have a ganglion cyst.
    A ganglion cyst is a tumor or swelling on top of a joint or the covering of a tendon.
    The cause of them are not fully understood.

    •Most ganglion cysts cause some degree of pain, usually following acute or repetitive trauma.

    •If pain is present, it is usually chronic and made worse by joint motion.

    •When the cyst is connected to a tendon, you may have a sense of weakness in the affected finger.

    Hoping this gives you a starting point....
