I have several very tender pea-sized lumps under the skin of my outer thighs and also inside the bend of my elbow. GP said fibromas? Why so painful?
Fibromas: Fibromas are the most common painful skin tumor. They are benign. Usually removal of these is not necessary. If they continue to be particularly bothersome, I would obtain a consult with a dermatologist to be sure of the diagnosis.
Found a firm mobile pea-sized lump under skin near elbow on left forearm. Now found one near elbow on upper arm, and one 1/2 way up back right bicep.
Mass: You will need to follow up with your family physician to evaluate. There could also be need a need for a General Surgery referral for biopsy of the pea size masses. But because you are giving me limited information (I do not know the consistency or shape or color), it is best that you follow up with a physician so they can do the necessary tests and visual assessment.
I have a painful lump under skin on bicep/ elbow. Hard lump not visible to the eye. Sends pain down arm?
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.

Pea size hard lump under skins surface. Attached to the tissue or muscle? Doesn't hurt at all. Located at where my elbow is but on the inside part. Moves around when I rub it. Extremely scared!!
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.
