i've got a bump on the bone near the head of my 5th metacarpal, its not very painful unless i do a handjam and it hurts some with a storng handshake. i hit the hand cracks pretty hard a month or so ago it felt good then and i didn't even notice it, until weeks later, i haven't been climbing much the last month but the pain and bump is still there.

is this a common injury? i can't afford xrays

any suggestions for treatment?

thanks
