This is likely a lipoma, and they are benign. If it's not a lipoma, it's usually not an issue, but if it gets bigger, then you should consider seeing a dermatologist to see if this needs to be removed.

would this cause any "sensation" in the arms? my forearm area seems to get a tingly fuzzy feeling just by having the arm bent sometimes.
This could be pressing on a nerve and thus giving you this sensation. If the feeling is more of numbness then I'd be more concerned and thus should get it looked at to see if it needs to be removed before causing any nerve compression injury.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
