    I've a hard lump/cyst on my center finger, palm side by the main joint. The knuckle is swollen and crooked, more as years go by.  There is no pain, and it flexes fine, just looking worse over time. What can I do? I'm 57 now. It's possible that the finger was damaged in a door years ago. After about the first year when I started noticing the downward crookedness, I tried to bend it back into place to see if it would go, and it cracked loudly and went back! But it didn't last, so I don't know if this is all caused by the growth or partially from other damage.
