Hi, thanks, am reading your query, will be replying in few seconds please. DrVasavada

Depends upon whether it is painful, soft or hard. Could be collection of pus if there is yellow or green tinge, for seeing which use strong flash light.

No yellow or green tinge. Feels hard. Can have pain sometimes but not other times

Then it could be a Heberden node due to bony changes come from overuse. see link :
