I have this painless hardened bump under my skin on the soft side of my forearm. I am kinda curious as to what it is..
It's definately under the skin.. But not attached to the muscle. It doesn't hurt to touch or anything.
Could it be a calcium deposit? If so, what do I do about it, and how'd it get there?
Has anyone else had this issue?

Hard Bump Under Skin
I was at the dr's today and asked about a small hard bump under the skin of my eyelid. It doesn't hurt, and there is no discoloration. It is not attached to anythng either. Doc said that it was a calcium deposit and to leave it alone because its not harmful. She also said if I wanted it removed to make an appointment with a specialist.

I have a hard bump on the soft side of my forearm the size of a pea. It doesn't hurt, should I be concerned?

I had 2 bumps on my skin out of these one was on my right arm and another was on my right leg. But I took homeopathy medicine by a homeopathic doctor. After using this medicine up to 2 months, bumps are spreading all over my body even in my chest too.

I am therefore very curious to know if there is any medicine to remove this bumps. However, these bumps are painless and only in the inner layer of skin and don't touch any muscle. But, when I move my hands over my body then I feel very nervous.

I will be very greatful if anyone will give me the right suggestion.

Tough impenetrable painless bump on forearm beneath the skin.
Why hasn''t anyone responded? Sad I have the same issue. I have a hump on my left forearm that is under the skin but not connected to the muscle. It pretty hard too. I''ve tried piercing it with a needle and the needle barely goes through. A tiny tiny amount of blood comes out; but yeah, it seems almost impenetrable. It doesn''t hurt though. I''ve wondered if it is an ingrown hair, but I doubt it since I don''t really have hair on my arms. I haven''t found anything online about what it is yet. Sad

I really hope someone responds with an answer or suggestion.

Gristly bumps
Order black salve - it's a drawing salve which will bring it to the surface. I had a couple of bumps where I could feel the gristle like hard thing deep inside the skin, I went to the doctor twice over a 8 month period of time - they said once to put warm compresses on, and the second time they essentially said nothing. The warm compresses never worked, and the doing nothing option did not suit me. I did a lot of research on the Internet and finally came to the conclusion that I would try black salve. I am not into alternative medicines, I simply don't buy into them - but black salve, the drawing salve worked within a few days. I applied the black paste to the bumps over a period of two days. On the second day, I tried to squeeze the hard gristley bump with as much force as I had done in the months prior - and when I squeezed - it popped with minimal force - it came to the surface immediately. It shocked me that this deep bump had surfaced. The internal part was just a concentrated area of white hard pus. The other bumps were just as easy to squeeze and clean. Once those bumps were squeezed and all the puss came out, I applied the black salve to the area again and within 36 hours a HUGE bump came to the surface that was full of yellow liquid puss. The bump was absolutely huge, gigantic - and when I squeezed that bump all the liquid puss came out. I did not clean it out with peroxide as I should have, so the next day there was more puss inside that bump. I squeezed it again, cleaned it out this time - and all is well. There are no more bumps, the places where there were bumps are entirely free of bumps - I am amazed at how well this black salve works. I would recommend it highly.
