soft lump on outside of elbow joint?

Lump on elbow

Bursitis
One thing that comes to mind is a bursitis. This is an inflammation of the bursa - a small fluid filled sack that lines some joints. The bursa can get inflamed due to trauma, overuse or infection. It's not always painful, but can present as a soft lump on the outside of the elbow. Standard treatment includes nsaids, ice, compression, avoidance of trauma and sometimes drainage and antibiotics.

dry skin is a very common reason for itchy skin. two other possible causes of itchy skin on the elbows may be from skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. see your doctor for a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis so that you can start appropriate treatment.

Been experiencing small red rashes and/or lumps on the inside of my left elbow only, vary in size. Usually not itchy, but always in the same spot.?

Need more info

Dermatology is pretty visual, so it's hard to know what is going on without seeing it. Eczema, psoriasis, and urticaria (hives) can develop around the elbows, though eczema and hives tend to be itchy. Sometimes an irritant or mild allergic contact dermatitis can present in the same place as well. I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist to help solve this one.

Whats this lump on my arm near the elbow?

Difficult to say

Elbow_pain
It is obviously difficult to guess what a lump could be without an examination,so come in and let a physician see it.!If it is painless and in the back of the elbow it could be your olecranon bursa.Lumps and bumps around the elbow are fairly common.you need an exam and xrays.

Dr. Ronald Krauser answered:

What this painful lump on/around my elbow could be?

Olecranon bursitis

Extremity-joint-elbow
It probably is an olecranon bursitis if the swelling is at the point of the elbow. See an orthopedist. Aspiration and a cortisone injection often resolves the problem.

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

I have found a lump just above my elbow, what is this?

Simple vs serious

Muscle
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.
