Finger Arthritis

There are two principle types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a wear and tear type arthritis where the cartilage that normally lines joint surfaces thins, exposing the underlying bone and producing pain.

Mucous Cyst

This is a ganglion of the end joint of the finger. It is a fluid-filled swelling that arises from the lining of the joint.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

This complication can occasionally follow surgery or injury to the limbs.
