It's about the size of a pea and is not liquidy, quite firm.
One guy told be it is a bible wart, he says they call them that because when you get them the cure is to slam your finger in an old school huge bible, which would then pop it and make it go away.
So what do you all think? Should I smack it a good one with a hammer again?
It's more commonly called "Gideon's disease", for the reason you stated, the use of a bible to "cure" it. Truth of the matter is, it's a ganglion cyst and doing that could lead to scarring or damage to the surrounding tissue, to say nothing of a recurrence . Typically they are found in the wrist or back of the hand.
