Hard lump after injection

Common Questions and Answers about Hard lump after injection


Avatar f tn I noticed tonight a hard, small, hard lump under the skin. I can't remember if that was the exact sight of the injection but am wondering if it would be there this long after. Is there any thing else it would be and should I be worried?
Avatar n tn I was holding the skin tight the whole time until the doc said to let go after inserting the needle. I have not noticed redness at the site, after the 6th month, I used to and it helped in choosing which leg to inject, but now...i can't tell.
691614 tn?1227468251 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.
Avatar f tn 8 Weeks ago I had br done - 565gr removed from the left and 785gr removed from the right. About two weeks after the surgery I noticed a hard lump in my right breast top - half of nipple up and out - it's about 3.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. I called my PS about it at that time - told them it felt like a potatoe was left in there, they said it was normal. I say my Gp this week for unrelated issues, she checked me out said she had concerns about the lump and sent me for an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn My sister's arm has the lump the size of a grapefruit a day after a pneumonia shot and she feels very cold and sick and unable to eat anything. Can you please give some advice on what she might do to ease the situation.
Avatar f tn My other injection sites don't really bother me. But today, the day after my right arm injection I have a BIG itchy bump that is hot and pink - not very comfortable, but not painful, just itchy like all get-out! I expect that my left arm will be the same tomorrow, since that was today's injection site. Anyone else getting this DAY AFTER issue? Any suggestions for helping with the discomfort other than allergy cream? My neuro's physician assistant suggested that, and it helps a little.
1225331 tn?1333369369 I can certainly understand being gun shy after that experience Kelly. Bravo! to you for going ahead with the next injection. You must be injecting 'naked' these days if you are pinching the skin, eh? Whatever skin you are able to pinch together represents double the amount of skin + subcutaneous fat your needle needs to penetrate to deposit the Copaxone in the correct place.
233622 tn?1279338505 the nurse told me 24 hours after injection rub the lump to break it up ...and it works...... the lump and the itch go away..... I hope you find a system that works for you....I would ask your doctor..... what about calling the nurse from where you get your Betaseron...Im sure she will try to help reduce the site reactions. I hope you feel better soon...
419792 tn?1208274426 We checked and there was nothing that we could see, but she was constantly licking her lips/paws/floor, swallowing hard (u could feel it in her stomach) and her throat seems to almost have a swollen lump in it....it probably lasted 10 minutes, after she had a drink of water everything was fine.
1181494 tn?1264385515 Has anyone using Copaxone experienced after a few weeks of normal injections, large red bumped up hot itchy spots where they have done their shot that lasts at least 5-7 days in each injection spot? This started after my third week of using Copaxone and it occurs in every injection spot available and has been going on for 2 1/2 weeks. The Shared Solutions people aren't much help. Hoping I could gain some insight from someone here! Any help is greatly appreciated!
Avatar n tn Please excuse if I jump aroung with thoughts my brain fog is very bad. I did my injection last friday and after I went to pull out the syringe I noticed some liquid leaking down my abdomem. I inject in my stomach area. I think I might have hit a muscle , not sure. My sides are really getting bad.
5401039 tn?1368033838 Since day 1 of Copaxone, after EVERY single injection every day I get a horrible huge painful lump that swells up, is hot to the touch, hard to the touch, and becomes very very itchy. It almost looks like I am having an allergic reaction or cellulitis. I have tried multiple depth settings (making the dreaded muscle hitting mistake too low and the million times worse itching when it's too shallow.
4455840 tn?1354845783 Jane asks the right questions. If you are doing Copaxone, site reactions like this are common. Be sure to rotate the injection areas and don't use the same spot again for several weeks. Massage the injection site (in the shower works best while your skin is wet) to help with the lump. You also may want to call the support nurse and talk about the depth setting on your autoinjector, if you are using one. Sometimes a change in depth will help with the lumps.
Avatar m tn I had 8 eight surgery after that injection with cortisone. The injection was not sterile. My ankle was not infected. I had the steroid injection with cortisone , because I had a ankle fracture and 3 operation. My ankle has 11 operation. I am walking only with orthopedic shoes. This was happened 7 years ago. Contact me.
1040373 tn?1273691088 so I adjust the jector at just a smidge above 4. I use the hot pad for 5 mins before injection, and cold pad after. It helps.
Avatar m tn landed on elbow...hurt pain ouch...shook it off...recovered. Since then I've had a strange hard lump (feels like bone) right on the top of my elbow. Up until recently, it never bothered me other than hitting my elbow on a hard surface it would swell up a bit and be tender for a few days. About four weeks ago I spiked a volleyball, trying to be the 'sand spike champ of the parks and rec league', Anyways, ouch, pain, swelling...
1396846 tn?1332463110 I get a little itching but no welt, no lump, no redness. I inject it a lot slower than the autoject so I am sure that is what is helping. It is suppose to go in over 10 seconds but with the autoject it goes in in 5 seconds or less and leaving welts as big as my arm. So needless to say I am happy that this is working for me. I will be much more comfortable doing daily shots without the site reactions. Well I just had to share!
Avatar f tn I have been left with this very strange perfectly round raised red lump that could be blister like but is hard with no apparent fluid just hard & has crusted over a bit. It doesn't hurt much, but looks pretty horrible & I'm not sure if it could be a wart or something. I am sorry if this sounds a bit vain to be so concerned with this, but I'm just feeling very large & self concious about it. I just can't seem to get rid of it. I would be very grateful for some advice. Thank you.
Avatar n tn it normally matches(not vagina) It's a really hard lump. It's not a white head I don't think because white puss wont come out. It's embarrassing I'm scared to show my husband I don't want him to think it's the herpes or something lol. This happened the day after waxing it was red at first then turned into a white lump! please help please! :( I'm super insecure about it.
Avatar m tn I have a lump near my sternum its only sore when touched or pushed on but when i bend over or move side to side im feeling this piercing feeling it is hard on my sternum but below its soft and thats where it hurts...it makes me have problems breathing...I have Lupas and Connective tissue disease so could this be related? Dr did a heart cath everything is ok there chest xray wasnt good i cant take enough deep breaths in to make a good xray my pulmonoligist says...
Avatar f tn It has now been just over two weeks since she received the injection and the lump has drastically reduced in size, and is now more like a hard pea. It has remained this size for approx 6 days now and is not decreasing or increasing in size. As a precaution, the Vet has suggested having a biopsy done (where some flesh is taken), but from what I have read, they may as well just take the whole lump while they have her under anesthetic.
Avatar f tn My dog (Wiggles - Beagle/Jack Russell mix 6 years old) has a lump on her neck about the size of a half dollar. It is where her collar is and we only noticed it because she kept scratching. It doesnt appear to be hurting her and it moves when you touch it. We are taking her to the vet tomorrow but just curious to what it could be.
Avatar n tn i just found a lump, right where the xyphoid is.Above stomach in the center and below rib cage. I have no pain but i do work out. I just want a little knowledge before i get checked out.
Avatar f tn After about 4 months, I started injecting manually, and found that the lumps decreased dramatically in size with the manual technique. Now, after I inject I have a small-ish lump which I massage after 24 hours. The lump usually lasts for a few days in most locations. In my arms, the lumps last around 10 days. I have never had much itchiness. Everyone has a somewhat different experience, and I feel I've been pretty lucky. Some find they are allergic and cannot handle the Copaxone.
Avatar n tn I have a lump too not a cyst its a hard boney lump and the docs not sure? anyone it doesnt hurt. Been refused xray as im only 31 waiting for an ultra sound.
Avatar n tn if you have already gone to the vet, i would go back. recently my dog had a lump removed from her upper back. i had gone to the vet after i noticed a lump. It was moveable, and the vet thought it was cancer. i brought her to a specialist who thought it was not cancer, that it was a hemotoma. He told me if it grow, spreads, etc we need to have it tested. we had it tested with a needle, and they found cancer cells.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm new to the group and thought I'd share my frustrations with you to see what you think. Last Friday night I noticed one small lump the size of a big marble located approximately 3 inches under my dog's (Dixie) right jaw and under the skin. I took her to the vet Sat. morning and they said it was an abscess and they gave me some antibiotics. They said if it gets bigger or doesn't seem to get smaller to bring her back on Monday.
