Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
I am online and will be happy to answer your questions.
thank you for your patience.
sorry to hear about your husband's heart attack.
a sore lump in the left arm will be concerning, if it is sore only after exertion, and associated with chest pain, shortness of breath, sweating.
if not associated with the activity, but is present all the time and you can actually feel the lump, it could be a lipoma, or simply muscle strain/pull. in that case, it is not concerning.
however, he should get a regular check by the cardiologist or his primary doctor for optimization of heart medications. Need of stress test and cardiac cath will be depending on whether or not he had angioplasty or bypass heart surgery.
I hope that answers your question.
please let me know if you have any questions. thank you

did i answer your query?
please feel free to ask any questions you have
if the lump is visible, can you please attach a picture of this?
blood clots more likely form in lower legs.
blood clots do not give a lump feeling, rather bruised, discolored and heavy feeling. if you can attach a picture here, it will be easy for me to comment on
did he got injections in that arm?
is it discolored in appearance?
red? warm? bruised appearance ?
you can take picture and attach here by clicking on clip icon above
thank you for replying.
when did you notice it, did it appear all of a sudden, or lump was already there and you just started feeling soreness
soft to touch and sore feeling can be lipoma, ( which most likely was already there and is now just hurting because of some inflammation in there )
however, without having actual look /examination and considering his history of heart attack and just getting off of warfarin, and sudden appearance , I would like you to pay a visit to ER now if possible and get actual physical done.
that is good to know,
if he had not heart attack or history of warfarin use,
i would have asked you to watch for size, color, pain, temperature changes or any other symptoms, but i would not take a risk to ignore serious things without getting physical done.
so you should be concerned because of history, sudden appearance and history of warfarin use.
did i make sense to you ?
please let me know if i should provide clarifications.
