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. ...Read more

I: I am not sure that can be answered without having the lump evaluated. Just above the elbow there are supratrochlear lymph nodes. If you had a tiny cut or infection the lymph node could be draining the germs, dead white blood cells or other gunk, which caused the lymph node to be inflammed. If you had multiple swollen nodes over the body, that could be problematic. ...Read more

Phlebitis likely: Phlebitis is simply an inflamed vein. It could also be thrombophlebitis with is an inflamed vein with a clot in it. Both respond to compression, ice, heat, rest, elevation, and anti-inflammatory medicine. The concern is that there is no clot extension into a deeper vein.

Moving her arm?: Is she moving her arm? If not she needs to be reevaluated. I can't say for sure without seeing the bumps but they may be abrasions from the fall, just make sure you clean them thoroughly. If she is moving her arm normally I would ice the lump and give her some OTC ibuprophen or tylenol (acetaminophen) for the pain and wait and see if anything changes. ...Read more

Just found a small lump in the crease of my elbow, it's tender to touch and I'm freaking out and can't stop feeling it What could it be?

Get informed: This is likely a simple lymph node that became inflamed while it began to work on serum debris from our forearm. The stimulus could be as simple as bug bites or a mild skin infection. This is much more likely at your age than something horrible. A visit with your doc could clear up the issue. ...Read more

Related?: Not exactly sure what you are describing but if they are close to the IV site it could be a superficial phlebitis but could also be an infection. Could be a reaction to what was given to you thru the IV but 2 weeks later much less likely. Best to let your doctor sort it out. ...Read more
