I have a lump deep under skin in the biceps muscle in the lower1/4of humerus. It is soft/squishy. Sono is inconclusive no bruise or lipoma. What is it?
Get it seen: Lipomas are often missed on us because the density of the lipoma is the same as the surrounding fat. That would be the most common soft tissue mass that is invisible on us. Best to have an md look at it. Hard or rapidly growing masses ar more concerning. Biopsy is the only way to know for sure. But a slow growing, soft mass may be watched with a physician if it acts benign. ...Read more

Conservative care: Not sure what to make of the bruise, but the hip pain and tailbone/back pain could simply represent overuse or soft tissue inflammation due to the two weeks of work. Aggravation of lumbar degeneration can also cause similar symptoms. Try relative rest (not bedrest), nsaids (i.e. Ibuprofen, aleve), and ice, and see your physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Depressed & bruising: Some antidepressants (like ssri's) can cause easy bruising -- usually in the form of small petechiae. Serotonin receptors are on platelets (and many other locations in the body). Their clumping can decrease, esp if Aspirin is added -- thus you could have easy bruising. Weak muscles could go with depression, but I suggest seeing your doctor for diagnostic detective work on all of this. ...Read more
