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
