Weird Lump On Top Of My Finger
Posted 27 June 2007 - 05:54 AM
Well, now I have this weird lump about the size of a dime on the top of my finger. It feels the same as the rest of the skin on my fingers, but there is an obvious bump. I have sine scleroderma...so it's not typical skin involvement. My sister thought it could be calcinosis. I cannot seem to find any pictures on the Internet and I'm not sure what to do. It does not hurt.

Thanks for the link. It does not look like calcinosis at all...but it could be a pre ulcer if there is such a thing. I am just paranoid. If I did not have Scleroderma, I'd totally blow it off and not give it a second thought. With Sclero though, every little body change freaks me out.
Thanks dear!!! I see a dermatologist Monday for the red dots, etc. and I'll have him take a look at it.

It is possible that it could be the beginning of skin involvement. Hmmm. Anyone want to enlighten me on how the first signs of skin involvement manifest?

I have a patch of skin on the top of my left first finger that began itching about 2 years ago. Then it became a little thickened and raised. Its oval shaped and a little bigger than a dime. The itching only lasted a couple weeks and its gotten less noticable in the past year. It never was very noticable except to me and doctor. Now its not noticable at all. During the itchy stage it also became shiny for awhile.
Does yours itch too?
Are you worried about developing skin involvement? I'm glad you'll be seeing dermy soon. Hope he/she knows something about sclero.
