I have a small lump under the skin, it's the size of a jelly bean. It is a bluish purple color. It has moved about 4 inch up my arm in a couple days?

I have a small lump under the skin, it's the size of a jelly bean.  It is a bluish purple color.  It has moved about 4 inch up my arm in a couple days?

Bluish lump: It's hard to know exactly what this is without seeing it or touching it. For this lump to physically move also seems unusual. It's possible u have a hematoma there and some blood may have tracked up your arm. Do u remember any injury to the site? Does it hurt to touch? Did anyone grab you? An enlarged vein (varicose) might appear like this too. Hope u can get some relief. ...Read more

See your doc: Sounds most likely like a lipoma, a benign fatty tumor. However you should bring it to the attention of your friendly primary care physician. ...Read more

I got the Depo-Provera shot yesterday, my arm is realy sore and burnng at injection site also a hard lump under the skin around injection site. Is this normal?

Yes: Sorry that happened. The symptoms you are describing though are normal. It's possible that a small blood vessel broke under the skin, or that your muscle is just cramping up around the area where the shot occurred. A little bit of time and it will be gone. In the meantime, for the pain, try some ibuprofen, 600mg. ...Read more
