Customer Question
I have a lump...

I have a lump under the skin on my left forearm . Pea sized it’s hard you can move it slightly and it’s painful . You can’t see it looking at my arm you have to feel it. I’m concerned

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

I’ve had the pain the past few days almost like a bruise feeling coming and going but now it’s like a constant sting if a bruise is being pressed
