I have a bump on arm with a red bruise surrounding the bump.

Customer Question
I have a bump...

I have a bump on arm with a red bruise surrounding the bump. I have never had a red bruise like this.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

I have had the bump and red bruise since yesterday. I am 76 and noticed the bruise after finishing weight lifting exercises.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have multiple sclerosis. Aside from MS I can't think of anything else.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
