What is the pain in the purlicue of the hand and could it be a localised tumour?

Pain in the purlicue can be caused by a variety of factors, the most common being motor injuries to the tissues of the purlicue, such as prolonged work with a lot of hand work, such as carrying goods or playing musical instruments.
Trauma, local inflammation, skin infections and local tumours may also cause this condition, but local tumours causing pain in the tiger’s mouth are extremely rare, so if there is a subcutaneous lump with pain, seek medical attention.
