Benign Fatty Tumor: Lipomas are non cancerous growths that may occur anywhere on your body, usually evident as a rubbery lump that can be felt just under the skin. They can be easily removed (often under local anesthesia in an office-setting, depending on it's size and location).

Doc, check it again: Shooting pain down the arm is the focus of what needs to be evaluated. It may relate to the lipoma. A lipoma, collections of fatty tissue under the skin, may occur in multiple areas of skin. If it changes size, or quality or becomes tender, it should be removed, because there may be a cancerous change in some cells. Shoot pain down arm and lipoma may be distinct problems, have both checked out. ...Read more
Infection anb cancer: Lumps in the area of lymph nodes that drain that area suggest an immunological reaction which is most likely a bacterial infection. The most common cause is the over use of anti-perspiriant in the underarm area. These same lymph nodes will trap cancer cells which grow and enlarge giving you that lump feeling. A helpful finding is the tenderness which is more likely caused by infection. ...Read more
