Hi

Please attach a picture here

If you injured the arm, or felt something pop while using it, a bicepts tendon rupture.

If it is round and protrudes, more likely a sebaceous cyst. These have to be removed to really go away.

The back of the elbow would be a bursitis.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
