Hard Lump/Black Spot, But "Normal" X-Rays and MRI's?

So I looked at the X-rays and MRI's of my hands and supposedly they're all normal. There's something slightly cloudy where the lumps on my hands and thumb are and they show as black spots on the MRI's.

I've had them redone and they still show up. I don't understand how these painful lumps are normal, especially if they're solid masses and not any type of ganglion cysts. Any ideas?
