No concern: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your ferritin levels are not a cause for concern.

Olecronon Bursitis: There is a large bursa over the elbow that normally is flat. It can become swollen from injury or infection. Sometimes just leaning on the elbow will cause some inflammation, usally goes away with heat and ibuprofen. If his elbow is real painful and it hurts to move his elbow, I am very concerned about a possible infection. This often needs to be drained. See your doctor. ...Read more

Fell three weeks ago landed on my arm, it was swollen a couple days and a little black and blue, arm still hurt arm does not hurt if at 90 degree angle but when i extend arm or bring in less than 90 degree angle arm hurt at front crease part of elbow

You : You could try simple measures such as over-the-counter medication, like Ibuprofen or aleve; however, it seems to me that it might be worth your while to seek additional input from your primary care physician. Three weeks is a rather lengthy time to have persistent loss of motion of the elbow. ...Read more

What should I do for a swollen elbow my brother had fallen earlier today and fell on his elbow. It then began to swell and a huge bubble looking thing formed above the elbow and its briusing around it....There is also a minor cut/scrape on top of the bubb

You : You should see a doctor. While it sounds like you might have a bursal swelling/bleeding you should have an evaluation that includes a good exam and x-rays to properly evaluate the bone and joints of the elbow as well as so-called soft tissue i.E ligaments, tendons, and nerves and especially ulnar nerve. Elbow injuries even without fracture or dislocation can quickly lead to stiffness. Also though from your description it's unlikely you want to make sure you don't develop any kind of infection from the cut that might possibly communicate with the joint. Best of luck. ...Read more
