Customer Question

Hi. I woke up with a large lump just above my elbow, on the inside of my arm. It's hot and a little painful to the touch. No sign of an insect bite. No unusual exercise or other activity. Any ideas?
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: Just got it today. It's soft, but feels like there's a small balloon inside my arm.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Had an IV for an MRI of my opposite side foot on Friday, but can't imagine the IV could have a delayed effect.
