Does that type of symptom just appear?

User Profile
I woke up today and noticed that my left radius is sore. It does not seem to be muscular, as it does not hurt to flex the muscle at all. I do not remember banging my arm yesterday either. The pain and tenderness is evident when my arm is pressed on over the radius, right in the middle of my forearm. As a hypochondriac and someone who knows 2 women with bones cancer, the first thing I thought of is bone cancer. Does that type of symptom just appear? What else could be causing this?

Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Pain in the forearm can arise from injury or inflammation that affects any of the tissues of the forearm, including the muscles, bones, blood vessels and tendons. It can be due to tendonitis or inflammation of the tendon at the elbow that radiates down through the arm.

I suggest you to apply cold compresses and take some anti inflammatory pain killers after prescription from your doctor. Give complete rest to the part and avoid doing any activity which causes any further damage.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
