Large egg sized lump on inner forearm. Just realized it was there when on the computer . No bug bite, not really painful, what could it be - cause?

Lipoma or Cyst

Insect_bite
A lipoma is a growth of fat cells in a thin, fibrous capsule usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are found most often on the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and armpits, but they can occur almost anywhere in the body. Or an epidermoid cyst is a closed sac under the skin filled with a cheese-like or oily material. Symptoms: The main symptom is usually a small, non-painful lump.

I woke up today with sore, sensitive skin up and down my left forearm. I also have painful lymph nodes under my arm and breast. What could this be?

LNs

Sebum
Time to get an exam. Sensitive skin from elbow down forearm to 5th finger is often pressure on the ulnar nerve at elbow. But with axillary lymph nodes, time for an exam if they are enlarged, tender, etc

Right hand pain. Sensitive skin upon touch. No trauma Wrist rotation and use of hand painful All fingers hurt Forearm pain when rotating wrist. Cause?

Hand Pain

Extremity-upper-hand-thumb
This is an unusua and complexl enough mix of symptoms that I'd say you should be seen by a hand doctor. That's not to say you need to worry about it, but some things just need to be seen in person.

Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

I have a lump on my upper forearm close to my elbow. It is fast growing and is increasingly painful. It is very solid and has started turning purple.

Skin Abscess

Elbow_pain
The description sounds like an abscess, or a localized infection. It likely requires an incision and drainage which usually cures it. This is a relatively simple bedside procedure. The body may be able to "wall it off" but there is a risk it will not. Can try warm compress, but advise to see your doctor soon since it is "fast growing".

Hard painful under the skin lumps in armpit! Cancer?

Have it examined

most likely it is either infection of the sweat glands or inflammation of the lymph gland. See your MD and have it examined and treated. antibiotic may likely be needed. Good luck.
