Venous Lake: Some people have small dark blue cystic like structures which are a confluence of dilated capillaries near the surface of the skin. They are called "venous lakes". They are benign. However, if it has a pulse it may be arterial and should be checked. Also, any rapidly changing lesion need evaluation by a doctor. ...Read more

I have semi hard lump on my left forearm what could it be? It started out as soft and i could squeeze it and feel it move under my skin.

See a dermatologist: It could be a cyst but it is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms. ...Read more

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

I have a hard tender lump under skin on forearm should I be worried. Just appeared over night?

Boil?: This is one of those "almost have to see it to tell what it is" things. If it is tender, it could be a boil--localized staph infection. They are usually red, tender and can come up rather suddenly. It may need an antibiotic or lancing if it worsens. If you get expanding redness, streaks up your arm or run a fever, you need to be seen urgently. ...Read more

See below: If this is in forearm near the wrist (either side of wrist), a ganglion cyst is favored. As with any 'firm lump' in the skin/subcutis, these are the possibilities: cysts (ganglion or inclusion), nodular fasciitis, neurofibroma, benign myxoid tumors, or other fibrous tumors such as DFSP. If it is a cyst, they generally do not require treatment; however, if infected, they need incision and drainage ...Read more
