1 doctor agrees

In brief: Irritation, allergy

One can have a local reaction that can be a lump; but another possibility is that the body is developing antibodies to the injected growth hormone.
This is more serious, and can lead to more serious reactions with each injection. The treating physician needs to evaluate.
