I was just wondering if I should get my hand checked out, here is what happened. About four months ago I was trying to close a panel on a jet (work on jets) and I slammed my hand up against it but my hand hit a screw about and inch below the base of my ring finger (actually I am not sure if that is where it hit, but that is the problem now). It hurt for a few days, maybe a week by it wasn't really bad. That was three months ago and now there is what feels like a little ball there, its pretty hard and doesn't move at all and it hurts when I put pressure on it so pretty much whenever I push something with that part of my hand.

It really doesn't hurt bad or anything, but it isn't normal and I was wondering if I should get it checked out. I should add though, it is very difficult and inconvenient for me to get to a hospital. I work nights so if I do go that will take hours out of my sleep, and that is forgetting all the trouble of making an appointment (its tough in the military), oh and all the crap I will get from coworkers for going to the hospital, most people ignore medical problems unless its bad, and even then most ignore it.

    In the words of Lee Corso, "If you're hurt. You're hurt."

    If it doesn't hurt then, well.. I understand you're probably worried about it. So what if the guys give you flak for it. Better safe than sorry.

    Your hands are your livelihood - if you're concerned, go get it checked out. That being said, I fell on my pinky (don't ask). It took about 8 months before I could move it properly again. After many doctors and more money that I would ever care to spend on a pinky, they were unable to do anything and it just required time. I still have a lump at the joint that I am told is scar tissue (underneath the skin).
