In brief: Many things

A bump must be seen and examined in person to be able to give a better idea what it is or isn't.
If it's worse, changes, or not improved in the next few weeks, go ahead to a doctur.

In brief: MD exam to confirm

Odds are the large lump on your arm is a benign soft tissue mass such as a fatty tumor or muscle hernia.
Nonetheless, you owe it to yourself to seek a thorough evaluation by your physician. Besides x-rays to evaluate the surrounding bony structures, an MRI detailing the makeup of the mass may also be indicated.
