Bump On arm

Miscellaneous Orthopedic Topics

Post subject: Bump On arm
- Fri Feb 04, 2005 2:07 pm

I have a bump on the inner part of my arm just past the elbow closer to the bicep. It is somewhat moveable and sore at times. the lump is almost directly over the tendon that is over there. I was wondering if this could have anything to do with the lymph,s.

Hi there F Boy,

The lump you have could be an epitrochlear lymph node. This can be enlarged due to viral infections. Some infection of the hand and forearm will cause this gland to become enlarged. Lymph nodes can be enlarged for a variety of reasons, and many of them quite harmless, but it is worth checking it out with your doc, to find out whether there is something you should worry about or not.

Lipomas and neuromas and other-omas can also produce similar lumps. Pulsatile lumps are usually vascular. Sebaceous cysts are usually adherent to skin but not underlying tissue. There are many to choose from, but as i say, get it checked out with your doc
