Likely bursitis: You should seek evaluation by an orthopaedic surgeon or physician focusing on musculoskeletal injuries. The image shows a typical appearance of olecranon bursitis- a common condition that usually resolves with rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications (nsaids), and brief immobilization. Aspiration is frowned upon due to increased risk of infection, but is occasionally indicated.

I have a lump near my elbow. Ultra sound it was solid & it was being fed by blood, what could it be?

I have a lump near my elbow. Ultra sound it was solid & it was being fed by blood, what could it be?

Usually benign: The most common solid lesions of the upper extremety are benign. If soft, consider a lipomatous growth. If firm benign fibromas can occur but one must think of MFH or a malignant fibrous tumor. The presence of blood supply is hard to define without angiography. If this has recently been noted and growing, then biopsy is indicated to determine method of management.

See someone now: If your primary provider can see you now, go. If not, consider an urgent care center or an emergency room. From your description you may have an infection. You should seek attention as soon as possible.

Lump: This may be a small, benign fatty tissue growth (lipoma) or a simple inclusion cyst. It would have to be examined by a physician for diagnosis. Perhaps the advice would be to leave it alone after the assessment.

I: I am not sure that can be answered without having the lump evaluated. Just above the elbow there are supratrochlear lymph nodes. If you had a tiny cut or infection the lymph node could be draining the germs, dead white blood cells or other gunk, which caused the lymph node to be inflammed. If you had multiple swollen nodes over the body, that could be problematic.

Simple vs serious: Our bodies always have things that grow and change. Skin, fat, muscle, lymph nodes, bones, can change shape, get larger, more prominent due to many factors. The vast majority are not cancer but simply unusual growths like fatty tumors, cysts, skin tags, moles, etc. Most cause no symptoms and can be watched. If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor.

Unlikely: If you fell on the same elbow, you could have injured the bursa (a small sac of fluid). This can result in traumatic bursitis, and will require a little time to heal. A hard lump is not uncommon as it heals and should resolve in a few weeks. If it persists, becomes red, painful or enlarges then you should seek medical care.

2nd opinion: It is unusual to have a reactive lymph node solely at one elbow and certainly not lasting for over a year. You need to get a 2nd opinion to find out the cause especially since the lump has been growing in size.

Likely lymph nodes: It sounds like it could be some swollen lymph nodes since it is in multiple locations. Would consult with your pcp and look for possible underlying infection or another reason for some lymph node enlargement.

Elbow Lump Causes: Many causes of elbow lumps: cysts, bursitis (olecranon), xanthomas (fatty tumors), abscesses (infections). Any persistent lump on the elbow should be examined by a physician. Some causes are easy to treat with minor surgery, antibiotics, etc. Others like xanthomas reflect more serious internal problems.

Olecranon bursitis: It probably is an olecranon bursitis if the swelling is at the point of the elbow. See an orthopedist. Aspiration and a cortisone injection often resolves the problem.
