Found a knot today under my skin. Hurts a little from messing with it now for a while. I felt of both arms and this is the only one I have found. It is under the skin but if I hold my skin taught you can see it's rise. It doesnt seem to move at all when I push on it. My flabby arm skin is moving but the knot seems to be stationary.
Okay, I will try this one more time. It is on the inner aspect of my left arm, proximal to the lateral side of my left breast. It is the size of large pea and hurts when you touch it. It does not move much. There is no color or head to it. If I hold my skin taught you can see it under my skin so I believe it is subcutaneous. I showed it to a friend of mine yesterday and oddly enough, she showed me hers. Same place, same texture, same pain, same amount of movement, but hers was the size of a nickel. She had an ultrasound done and hers was a Calcium deposit, so now I don't know if I should follow-up on it.
It will be a good idea this to be checked by a doctor.
Even, if it is a calcification, a non cancerous growth, the doctor should look at the size and shape of the calcification. If it appear suspicious, additional examinations may be needed.
No I have not followed up yet on it. I know I should have but I am a fulltime RN student and I also work full time at the local hospital. And this is why I should know better! It is still there seems about the same size maybe a little smaller. Still hurts when I press on it. I will look at my calendar and see what I can pencil in.
Thanks for your concern!
I have a light blueish green knot on my shoulder/neck area it feels like it's between the skin and fat layer. it's about the size of a pea and it hurts when messed with. iv had it for years it's gotten bigger but not alot. I haven't gotten it checked out yet and my parents aren't worried about it because they suggusted it was a calcium deposit. So my question is I don't rele drink milk and when I do I don't drink much so why would my body take what little calicum intake I get and waste it by making a knot how do I know it's not a tumor good or bad. How do I know it's actually a calcium deposit
I have a knot on my upper/outer arm... I thought it was a spider bite. It has a puncture hole(at least that's what it looks like, could be a seriously large pore? LOL ) At first it was super sensitive to the touch, not even pushing on it, but barely brushing the surface of the skin...Then it turned sort of purple-ish, looked like a bruise and felt like a bruise. Now (about a month after I first noticed it) the purple is gone, the knot and 'puncture hole' is still there... The knot is about the size of a nickel. It doesn't hurt really anymore, unless I press hard on it.... Does cancer come like this!?? What does a calcium deposit look/feel like? and will this go away!?? Are there any spider bites that resemble this?
