Common Questions and Answers about Lump in arm


414383 tn?1217219169 I have had this lump on my upper arm, underneath about three inches from my armpit, for almost four years. I have gone to the doctor and had her look at it. All she said was it was probably nothing. It gives of a throbbing pain every so often and is tender to the touch. I am worried that it might be a tumor because I have recently had my thryoid removed because of two tumors. Should I have this evaluated again and ask if it is a tumor.
Avatar n tn Alright, so I recently had an infection in my right armpit that went away with antibiotics, and I recently discovered a lump in my right arm. Three days ago, the doctor said the infection was gone, but now I'm worried. Whenever I have my arm down at my side, it feels like there's something swollen. I'm only nineteen and I'm extremely worried about what that could be, considering it's location. Anyone know if maybe it's an after effect of the armpit infection?
Avatar m tn I`ve got a friend who has a drug use problem and 2 weeks ago got a lump in her arm after using meth via needle. It is a hard lump, no discoloration of the skin. when the arm is outstretched the muscle down the inner arm cramps up. She refuses to go to a doctor. What could this possibly be?
Avatar n tn Hi, An armpit lump refers to enlargement of one or more lymph nodes under the arm. Lumps in the armpit have various causes. Cysts and infections on the surface of the skin of the armpit may be caused by shaving or use of antiperspirants (as opposed to deodorants). Abscesses under the skin may also produce large, painful lumps in the armpit. Lumps may occur when lymph nodes are swollen due to bacterial or viral infections, vaccinations, and cancer.

Avatar f tn About 3 weeks ago I found a lump on the proximal humerus in my left arm. I had this ache in it, sort of like you feel when you have the flu. It didn't last too long, but enough for me to notice it. When the lump is touched it doesn't really hurt, maybe a tiny bit tender, but I get aches and pains in the area of the lump. Sometimes my arm feels tingly and heavy, as if it fell asleep when it hasn't. It's hard to lift up my arm or to use it.

Avatar n tn it actually draws the skin in about half way up my arm on the underside when I try to stretch my arm completely out. The lump or whatever it could be seems to have gotten smaller but it is causing pain all the way down my upper arm. I have a doctor's appt. next week but am extremely worried and have not been able to find out much information from searching.
Avatar n tn I just found a lump in my right arm pit. Reading about theese it seems like it could be a swoolen glad or something, but what concerns me is mine sounds a bit diffrent then the others I have been reading about. I have no pain. Very minor discomfort when it is pressed on, but barely. Also it is big, really big. I noticed it streching this morning, for some reason I rubbed it with my left hand when my right was raised and there it was. I would say it is about the size of the palm of my hand.

Avatar n tn I have had a protruding lump in My mid upper right arm in the back for about eight years now. It is always hot to the touch and is extremely painful to touch even when putting a shirt on or moving the wrong way while sleeping. At times it throbs and is also very painful then, occasionally waking me out of a sound sleep or preventing me from getting to sleep.
