Ive found a group of small bumps located on my forearm...they arent visible but i can feel them. They are all located around a vien....are these enlarged lymph nodes? If so, is there anything i should be worried about?

User avatar Dear Lou,

i don't think that these are lymph nodes because lymph nodes have certain and specific locations where they are located in groups.

The lumps that you are referring to have to be examined by looked at by a health professional if they persisit or get any bigger.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
