A male has a golf size lump on arm near elbow. Can it be a hernia?

Not a hernia: Hernias are holes in the abdominal wall. A lump on the upper extremity is likely a lipoma (common, non cancerous fatty tumor), but should be checked out by a primary care provider.

What's this lump on my arm near the elbow?

What's this lump on my arm near the elbow?

Difficult to say: It is obviously difficult to guess what a lump could be without an examination, so come in and let a physician see it.! if it is painless and in the back of the elbow it could be your olecranon bursa. Lumps and bumps around the elbow are fairly common. You need an exam and xrays.

Bursitis?: You possibly have the inflammation of Olecranon bursa also called Olecranon Bursitis, which seemed to be chronic in your case, try not to lean on your elbows, protecting your elbows during sports activities with elbow pads, See your provider for an Xray and possible Anti inflammatory medications.

Related?: Not exactly sure what you are describing but if they are close to the IV site it could be a superficial phlebitis but could also be an infection. Could be a reaction to what was given to you thru the IV but 2 weeks later much less likely. Best to let your doctor sort it out.

Infection or abscess: Hard to say for sure but could be an infection that might produce these symptoms. Fevers? Is it warm to touch? Could be a clot. If it is really bothering you would a doctor.

I have a big lump on my rt fore arm I also have a couple of small lumps and even smaller ones in both elbows very painful from shoulders to fingers?

Sounds serious: At least potentially. Are these bumps at all tender? Any streaks up the arm? Lumps in armpits? Have you been bitten or scratched by any animal (especially cat) or insect? Any fever? You should see someone to find out what's going on, especially with the pain. It could get worse quickly and you would be in pain and without guidance. Good luck!

Arm Lump: Lumps under the skin can be caused by a number of conditions. Causes can include benign (harmless) cysts, lipomas (harmless fatty growths), and infections on the surface of the skin of the armpit. Lumps may be produced by enlarged lymph nodes. See your general surgeon for removal.

Lump on inner arm above elbow, it aches and I'm absolutely terrified, feels like peas and is moveable, what could it be?

Lump on inner arm above elbow, it aches and I'm absolutely terrified, feels like peas and is moveable, what could it be?

That's All I Knowed: Sounds like a lymph node. They are little rubbery things that fight infection. First they may get tender, then they may enlarge in response to a progressing infection or inflammation. Next step on that train is the armpit. The lump you describe is probably the "epitrochlear" lymph node or nodes that fight infection in the last 2 or 3 fingers and that part of the palm. Anything there??? If not.....

Hi I have a large hard lump on my right lower arm right below the elbow and it started off looking like a bruise but now it grew to be huge?

Bump: Depends on location. If it is under the elbow in the area of the olecranon it simply is bursitis and easily can be drained. See your PCP first and he can refer you if needed.
