Any nurses - blood blister on finger

About four months ago, I dropped a very heavy box on my finger at work. No break and no bruising at the time. About a month later though, this bump came up on my finger. It seems to be fluid filled and is quite blue/purple so is presumably blood. It's slightly warm to the touch. It's only painful if I press on one certain part of it.

I'm currently 7.5 months pregnant, so apparently I have way more blood in my body than normal? Is there any chance this bump will go down by itself after baby comes?!

That's not a blood blister - but I do not know what it is. Sorry.

Huh. Is that one of those bumps that comes up with the healing of a broken bone? It’s not a blood blister.

To echo previous posters, that’s not a blood blister. Haven’t you been to the GP?

I showed it to the GP at one of my maternity appointments, and she just said 'oh, that's a bit of a burst blood vessel/blister, it'll go away soon enough'. That was quite some time ago though and I think it's worse now.

Take it to your GP, I don’t think it’s anything dangerous but it’s best to find out what it is.
