I have no symptoms, they've gone, and I can do everything as before.

Thinking about it now I was probably noticing pain in my middle finger on my right hand for about a year . It started only when it was really cold My finger nail would start to hurt I wouldn’t take much notice and put on a pair of gloves and ignore it.

As time went on I would dread pushing the pram in cold weather as my finger was becoming so painful and it was beginning to be a daily thing and a lot worse in cold weather.
It got to the point where it felt like my finger was constantly hurting and waking me up in the night it was strange for it not to hurt .It felt like someone kept whacking it with a hammer and the slightest knock of my finger would be awful.

So I went to the GP I was a bit embarrassed at 29 years old walking in a doctor’s office complaining my finger hurts.
He started to keep an eye on it every couple of weeks and sent me for an x-ray as he thought it may be an infection in the bone all results were clear but I still had this pain !!!.

On my 3rd visit to my GP he noticed a small blue/black spot that was under the nail and to push down on it was really painful. So he referred me to a dermatologist.

An MRI later and I had a suspected Glomus tumour and was told it would need to come out and the details of the op which although it’s a minor operation it didn’t sound great and considering I have two children a 4 year old and a 9 month old baby I wasn’t looking forward to recovery.

I was then referred again onto DR M Sood who confirmed it was a Glomus Tumour. From the moment I walked in Dr Soods office he made me feel at ease he made the operation sound easy. The Glomus tumour is under the nail and was making a slight indentation into the bone . They take your nail off cut through your finger to remove this tiny tumour and stitch the old nail back on and it will fall off around 3 weeks later.

Operation day came round and I was nervous the thought of my nail being cut off and cutting through my finger was scary but Dr Sood and the anaesthetist took time to come and see me before the op and once again I was put at ease.
I had slight sedation and a finger block and I woke up whilst in theatre and Dr Sood was working away on my finger . I couldn’t feel a thing.It was Probably the most pain free id been in months and I must of been in theatre an hour at the most.

Recovery was great too the pain was managed with paracetamol and ibuprofen and I only had to take these for 3 days at the most. A week later I’m in less pain than before I had the op and so happy I had it done . I never realised how much it had been affecting me day to day .

I can’t recommend Dr Sood enough he has done an amazing job looking at it a week after the op it looks great nothing gory like I had imagined.
The fact he takes time out to be reassuring too is a bonus. If I was ever to get a Glomus tumour again I wouldn’t even question having it done again .

I walked out the hospital into the cold and not even a twinge and so relieved .
