Hello all. I've had a lump in my elbow crease for a very long time now (years). Sometimes there is no pain at all but sometimes the pain is quite sharp. I'm guessing that's because it might be pushing down on some nerves in my arm. Every doctor that I've gone to tells me it's not a big deal and I shouldn't worry about it. Lately it's been bothering me more often than not. Sometimes when I wake up and extend my arm it is quite painful. But sometimes it is not painful at all. The swelling seems to come and go. Sometimes it is tender, painless and does not hurt when I push down on it a bit. But other times it swells up, becomes a bit hard and hurts when I push on it. Sometimes when my arm is bent for an extended period of time it hurts to extend it and the lump is swollen. I've included a picture. I plan on going to see a doctor in a couple weeks to get it looked at thoroughly but I cannot do so until May 1st. I just wanted to see if I can get anyone's opinion on this that has experienced anything like this or seen anything similar. Thanks in advance! (Sorry if this is not the forum for this)
