Lump at my elbow

Common Questions and Answers about Lump at my elbow


I have also had tendinitis that comes and goes away on it's own. My husband now has a lump on his elbow about the size of a marble, maybe a tiny bit bigger than a marble. I never heard of a lump forming due to tendinitis - would this be normal? The lump is hard and painful to him when I tried feeling the lump. I told him several times to call the doctor, but he thinks it's just tendinitis. Has anyone else also experienced a lump from tendinitis?
My 18 year old son has a lump on his inner arm to the side of his elbow. it is small,slightly whiter than the surrounding skin and resembles a lipoma, but the surface skin is wrinkled. Our doctor has assured us it is nothing to worry about, although he is not sure what it is, but has suggested it is from pressure from leaning. However, skin is not rough or calloused. He prescribed a anti-bacterial cream ( I think it is steroidal too) but it is not having any effect.

Around the beginning of Summer, I noticed some type of lump/swelling on my inner elbow, right above the crease on the side closest to my body with palm facing up.

There is no discoloration and no lump can be felt beneath the skin when my arm is bent.

The pain seem to be coming from my wrist and shooting up my arm to my elbow and down to my hand. It hurts in my thumb, pointer finger, and my pinky finger. I also have a lump on the top of my wrist on the thumb side. I am at a loss as to what to do. I sleep with a brace on everynight and I take anti inflamatory meds when it flares up bad. Any suggestions as to what this could be?
At the moment my elbow is bent and as I type this the tingling and odd stinging pain has traveled down to my hand. My veins in my hands and down my arm seem to be bulging and my skin feels all tight and taut. I feel like I need to stretch like an elastic just to type. I have tried to push it away but it hurts A LOT. On top of the pain, it also feels like my arm/hand/fingers are slowly going numb. Pain/numbness is even traveling up to my shoulder...
Does it involve a lot of movement or rotation at the elbow joint or constant pressure on the elbow for long hours? Is the swelling on the inside or outside of your elbow joint?

'Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender.

The lump is located (palm-side up) about 2-3 inches below my elbow (pinky side). The lump feels like a bb and its tender. At first there was some swelling, but it appears to have gone down and its not as tender.

When she tried to explain what "reaction" meant --- it just didn't make sense.

When I poke it, even slightly, it causes pain into the elbow! It's very superficial. I barely have to touch my armpit to find the lump. In other words, it't not deep in the armpit in the "hollow of the armpit. In fact, the lump feels like its right in the muscle of the armpit. The skin covering this bump also feels like a little swollen. Question TWO: Is one swollen lymph nodes = ARS? I hear that swollen lymph nodes can indicate HIV ARS.

The other morning I woke up and my right arm hurt,feeling under my arm I felt a lump, it felt like maybe a spider bite so I wasn't too worried. It isn't red and it is not swollen. I does have some dull pain to it and hurts when I press on it. It is located ubder my right arm around the mid-bicep area.Today I felt another one just above the elbow area on the same arm. Is this anything I should be concerned with or could this just be fatt deposits or could it be a sign of cancer of some sort?

My vein is hard, and there is a hard lump where my elbow crease is.... it's not hurting at all anymore. I'm just assuming she damaged the vein a little, Maybe there is some clotting going on.... but I assume it will go away.
Or do you think I might just have some swelling around that bone from the pulled muscle. When I lay on my side with my elbow propped on my head, the lump seems huge! Please let me know what you think.
Hi: I have a small limp on my upper right arm about 2.5 inches from the elbow. Its about 3/4 to 1 inch in size, has not changes much in the last 3 months and the area around it is kind of bumpy (not on skin, but inside). I have no pain. It's kind of hard but does not protrude much at al. I'm a mail, 49 in great heath, so history of cancer in me or my family. Of course I'm concerned that it's a soft tissue cancer -- can someone descrive how a soft tissue in this area feels? Could this be one?
On my left arm, above my elbow, There is a lump kind of deep. It's not too large is size, but about the length of a small apple. It's painful and feels like it puts off a slight pressure.

I know I'm probably just sick on top of this, but I'm really feeling bad. Ahy help?
Hi, my best friends daughter has a small lump located near the elbow on the inside of her right arm. Her arm is very painful, and she cannot lift it.

She has no other symptoms of being un-well...She has seen a doctor who said it could be lymphoma...but after reading up on that condition, she does not have any other symptoms...her blood-work came back clean, too.

Finally, she just said that there was some irritation.
