Considered as an aid to regulate temperature:

Glomus body is an integral part of the dermal layer of skin. When the glomus body comes in contact with cold temperatures, they move blood away from the surface touched to reduce heat loss. Though Glomus body are found all over yet they are more prevalently present in fingers and toes and an abnormal growth of glomus body results in glomus tumors.

With slow growth and rarity:

these abnormal growth of mass of tissues are usually not malignant in nature. With no fathomable cause of the tumors having yet been diagnosed except perhaps some hereditary link, they are extremely painful and more so when placed in cold water. The signs that signify glomus tumors are elevated nail bed and bluish or whitish discoloration as a possible indication.

Frequently found more in young adults:

Glomus tumors usually affect people between 20-50 years of age and more so, women. Being not more than 7mm in diameter, these benign tumors very rarely are transformed to malignant / cancerous tumors thereby becoming more than 2cm in diameter. This complex finger tumor needs a surgeon who is not only well versed with this condition but has skilled hands to treat it respectively.
