Answer:

not sure if this helps, but I have arthritis and have a lump on the inner side of my knuckle on the pinky finger. I hear of many people having a lump on the ring or pinky finger..... not sure if it is related to your case, but just thought I would throw it out there in case you have other symptoms like pain in joints especially in morning, swollen fingers or toes, reddness or heat in knuckles, pain in back/neck, psoriasis....All could be indicators of some form of arthritis.
Answer:

Based on total symptoms for all of you - could be several reasons, but only a doc can tell you exactly what yours is - by looking at it.
Arthritis, ganglion cysts, infected hair follicle, tick or spider bite...etc.
Never hurts to see a doc to ensure your remain healthy.
Answer:

Well I have this same problem. Mine is the middle finger( guessed I have used this one too much)

But the if you hold my finger to the side you can see the little bump. I know it's not a spider bite...I don't think it's arthritis because there is not really any pain in moving it.
It's just weird that this bump on my joint would appear and has been there for about 4 months
Answer:

Well thank goodness for all of you, because I feel much better now.

Last night a lump appeared at the base of my right middle finger, and I thought, lump on bone, lump on bone, this can't be good.

I have a doc's appt for 3 days from now so she can look at it, but at least I won't lose any more sleep, hair or appetite over it.
