In brief: Doc, check it again

Shooting pain down the arm is the focus of what needs to be evaluated.
It may relate to the lipoma. A lipoma, collections of fatty tissue under the skin, may occur in multiple areas of skin. If it changes size, or quality or becomes tender, it should be removed, because there may be a cancerous change in some cells. Shoot pain down arm and lipoma may be distinct problems, have both checked out.
