Not an easy: thing to guess at from your description. May have no relationship to pushups and could be an early abscess in addition to a number of other possibilities. I would have a physician take a look at it soon. ...Read more

I have bump on my bicep attached to the bone. Could this be cancer?

I have bump on my bicep attached to the bone. Could this be cancer?

Highly unlikely: There is no relationship between trauma and cancer. However, a lot of times, trauma will bring attention to a pre existing cancer condition. If there are no symptoms or new nodule around that area one does not need to worry. But if there are persistent symptoms and new abnormality, then you need to seek medical advice. ...Read more

I gave myself a B-12 shot about 2 months ago & just today noticed a hard painful bump, in the same spot (outside of my bicep). Doesn't seem normal??

It is not: A shot 2 months ago would not usually cause a lump to occur. The lump may be something else. Possibly a sebaceous cyst or a lipoma (benign growth). Have the Dr. Look at it if time and/or warm compresses do not resolve it. ...Read more

Both of my arms randomly flush from mid-bicep down to forearm. Looks like a sunburn. No bumps or other symptoms. Is this normal? What is causing this?

Check out Raynauds: if it's not due to sunburn or meds, working out,or allergic reaction to something topical making contact with the skin of arms, consider Raynaud's Syndrome--it usually starts with pallor of the extremities, hands, fingers, etc, which may then feel numb and cool, due to decreased blood supply, but as the vessels rebound and dilate, the skin may become flushed in those same areas. Just a thought. ...Read more

Bug bite; infection?: Bumps on 3 separate parts of the body may be bug bites and/or may be small boils (skin infections; small abscesses). A visit to one's primary care doctor is needed, as bumps are very hard to describe in words. Antibiotics may be needed, if there are signs of infection. Others causes of bumps are possible, but less likely. If the bumps are mysterious-looking, a dermatologist can examine them. ...Read more
