Lump on arm

I have a lump the size of a large grape on the inside of my arm right next to the bottom side of the inside of my elbow. Its painful. Could this be a swollen lymph node? Any other ideas? Should I see a doctor or wait it out?

  • My friend has Fibroids in her arm which is just like what your describing... a doctors visit wouldn't hurt, but I dont think you need to stress over it.

  • My dad had fatty tumors something like that. But best to get it checked out when you can.

  • Id go see a Dr. That could be almost anything. Better safe than sorry. There arnt any lymph nodes in that area to my knowledge, but that is a muscled area. You may have torn a muscle or ligament. See he Dr.

  • i'm not sure what it could be, but you should probably have it checked out. Hopefully, it isn't anything serious, but it's better to be safe than sorry!
