hello would you like to chat on this?
hello.. just to clarify.. you are asking whether a lymph node can be removed from the elbow?
you want to take if off yourself?
well, then that wasnt a lymph node
you cant scratch off a lymph node
that would be a wart
a wart is a viral infection
a wart is most likely
also a skin tag
nothing to worry about here
you do not have to do anything but do just keep a watch on that area
yes, it could have been just a scab also
a scab forms over a minor cut
this can be scratched off easily
so dont worry about this
keep a watch on the area
if you see something else again, have it seen to by a doctor this time
a wart seems likely then
if it was a wart there is a chance it could recur again
so if you see something in the area again, show your doctor for this
but no other cause to worry for this
