Alternatively, have your friends hold him down, then take a dump in his mouth, make sure your genitals don't touch him though, that's gay.

You have genital warts and it finally spread to your hand.

Nice replies. Is this The Pit? No.

In all honesty, I have no idea what it could be.. is it painful?

Yeah really, where did all these pit kids come from? They all swarmed in on this one thread....

The thing I had felt like a part of my bone was sticking out and it eventually went away over time...nothing to worry about.

Id still get it checked out though.

is it a callus?

"A callus (or callosity) is an especially toughened area of skin which has become relatively thick and hard as a response to repeated contact or pressure. In botany, the term is also used to announce a condition of thickened surfaces of leaves or other plant parts. Since repeated contact is required, calluses are most often found on hands or feet. Calluses are generally not harmful, but may sometimes lead to other problems, such as infection."

Could it be from excessive down picking with bad technique?

Edit: I misread where you said it was. It seems like it must be unrelated tho. I can't really see where playing guitar or bass could give you such an affliction.

Uh no. It's not a callus. Or at least from TS's description, I'd have a hard time believing it's a callus.
Also, nice job copying and pasting the definition of a callus from wikipedia.

if it does it is most likely a ganglion cyst, i had one on the back of my fretting wrist.

Anyways, this is bass forum, if you want help, go seek a physician.


But, while you're at it, put this in The Pit, I wanna see the replies.

I had one of those same place. I was fine playing, but i couldn't lift weights or anything like that. They drained it but it didn't do crap, so i had surgery. Doctor said wait at least 2 weeks to play. I played a little the next day and played through a full practice 4 days later.
