I don't recall learning anything about enlarged nodes in the forearm and suspect the nodule is not likely to be lymphoma. Any doctor can make a mistake. Please let me know if that is the case and we will both learn something.

It's very uncommon. A Hodgkin's node is almost always very obviously abnormal clinically. Lymph nodes are actually seldom seen in the forearm -- normal or abnormal. Might this be a ganglion cyst? A lipoma? A dermatofibroma? Glad you're seeing a physician for it. Best wishes.
