While: While it is possible it is a knot of healing bone (callus) from a small crack, you would likely have had more pain in the area from the injury.

Oftentimes people will notice a lump after an injury draws attention to the area or will think of a recent injury to explain a lump. A hard, non-mobile lump should always be evaluated....And soon. It may be nothing, but it could point to a serious problem.

Even if you're young, there are bony tumors that can occur. Benign lesions, like aneurysmal bone cysts, can be treated with good outcomes. However, these need to be distinguished from the much rarer, but far more dangerous, sarcomas.

You should see an orthopaedic or hand surgeon very soon and have x-rays taken. If the x-rays don't come to a conclusion, then MRI may be helpful. Sometimes other tests are needed as well, such as blood work. ...Read more

How long will a broken bone hurt? I broke my ulna 2 weeks ago and it still hurts. It is a clean break that did not need to be set but is in a cast.

How long will a broken bone hurt? I broke my ulna 2 weeks ago and it still hurts. It is a clean break that did not need to be set but is in a cast.

Is cast too tight?: Sometimes, there is swelling after a cast is applied. Such swelling can be serious and cause ongoing pain. Generally, if your broken bone is casted correctly, there is not much pain on a non-weight bearing area. Are you using your arm too much or putting strain on it? Have you reinjured it? If not, please see your bone doctor in 24-48 hours. Make sure to say you are having pain!!! Good Luck ...Read more

My brother has a hard lump just below his xyphoid process. Xrays and density bone scan show nothing. It doesn't hurt or move around. What could it be.

An up turning zyfoid: Process which is the lowest segment of the sternum is the most likely answer. Especially so in thinner people or those who have lost weight recently.

I noticed a lump on the back of my head. It's hard, immovable but it doesn't really hurt unless I push hard on it. I heard it may be a part of the skull (bone) but I'm not 100% sure. Any help is appreciated.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination, however, it does not appear to be a serious issue and you may wait to consult your doctor next time you see her/him. If the "lump" doubles in size, bleeds or ulcerates, see a doctor immediately.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor. ...Read more
