Skin lump: Usually possibilities include a cyst, a lymph node, or a lipoma. However there are many other rarer possibilities. It is prudent to ask your doctor to evaluate the lesion. You should go promptly if the lesion is growing or changing. ...Read more

This needs a hands-: -on exam. Start with Ur PCP & get referred if needed. Not a usual place 4 a lyump node unless close 2 the elbow in the epichondylar area. Pain is not associated with them either. Could B an infected cyst, but that's just a guess U do need 2 B C-n. ...Read more

Possible cyst: These are always difficult, even when seen in person. Cysts, lipoma (little fatty growths) and rheumatoid nodules can all cause similar little lumps under the skin. Though most are benign, it is worth getting it checked out by your primary doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

Lymph node: Lymph nodes are found throughout the body. The most common ones that can be felt are both in the front and back of the neck, under the armpits and in the groin. One can also find them around the elbows. Any scratch, bite, or infection can make a particular lymph node draining that area, swell. If they continue to grow and persist over six weeks, they need to be evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

Varies: There are a number of possibilities; from an enlarged lymph node, to a growth of a tumor or an infectious process among other possibilities. If it is red, painful, enlarging you should probably be seen immediately. If it is not, you could potentially moniter it and if it does not resolve over 4 weeks be seen. It is hard to say more without a direct examination. ...Read more
