Painless Lump On Elbow

See your doctor: See your doctor for an exam to determine whether this is a lymph node or not.
I have a small lump/bump under (inside) my skin around my right elbow it does not hurt but can be felt and is somewhat visible. I am freaking out.?
Possible cyst: These are always difficult, even when seen in person. Cysts, lipoma (little fatty growths) and rheumatoid nodules can all cause similar little lumps under the skin. Though most are benign, it is worth getting it checked out by your primary doctor or a dermatologist.
Small lump forearm near elbow, not on elbow. Hit area hard a few weeks ago. No pain. Cancer possible?
Unlikely: Fat necrosis is one of the common causes of a nodule in the skin after trauma. Cancer usually does not develop within weeks, so that seems unlikely. Was it possible there was lump there before, and you only notice it now after the injury? Without an age, there are some other possibilities that could be seen: gout, arthritis, etc.
What could cause a painless lump the size of a nickel in a woman's inner forearm just below the elbow?

I have a lump under skin on right arm by my elbow. Can not tell if it is attached. Does not hurt. It is raised slightly what could it be?

What is a hard lump deep in the skin on elbow? Picked at it badly causing scab, a pea sized white fluid filled lump pulled out with the scab, no pain.
Could be a cyst: This sounds like a cyst, but there are many other causes for the "hard lump". You should get is checked out.
I have a lump on the inside of my arm near the elbow. It is about an inch in diameter and is not sore. I work regularly with weights and wonder if that could be the problem. It has been there about three weeks and has not gotten any larger.
Possible cyst: A lump needs to be seen by a physician before a diagnosis can be made. It's quite possible that you have a benign lesion like a cyst, but you'll have to go to a physician for evaluation.
Above elbow inside hand, feels like tablet structure and flexible. Pressing inside no pain, catch and press with 2fingers its pain. What is that? Any lump?
Lipoma: I'm not sure from your description, did you mean the inside of your arm above your elbow there is a mobile mass that only hurts if you squeeze it? That would most likely be a lipoma which are common on the arms. If it's on the outside of the arm, the same thing. If it is changing see your doc. Good health
Simple vs serious: Our bodies always have things that grow and change. Skin, fat, muscle, lymph nodes, bones, can change shape, get larger, more prominent due to many factors. The vast majority are not cancer but simply unusual growths like fatty tumors, cysts, skin tags, moles, etc. Most cause no symptoms and can be watched. If they cause symptoms or change colors, bleed, bruise or hurt, then see your doctor.
See your doctor: Your doctor needs to examine you and run some tests to see what's going on.
Olecranon bursa: It sound as if you are describing an olecranon bursa. They are benign. It could be aspirated and then a compressive dressing applied for a few days and that should relieve it. Otherwise prolotherapy to the bursa will close it down. It is not a cause for worry.See 1 more doctor answer

Maybe a lipoma.: This could be a variety of things. It sounds like it might be a lipoma. You could take pictures of it and then either see a doctor in person or on HealthTap to further evaluate it. If you use HealthTap, make sure your pictures are high-quality and that you get close-up pictures, if at all possible.See 1 more doctor answer
