I am a 20 year old male and I have a lump in my left fore arm on the postireior side. It has been sore if i push on it. There are no signs of bite mark. It is under the skin, on top of the muscle. Is it calcium build up or bite? please help.

  • Is is on the side of the palm of the hand (anterior), or the side related to the top of the hand (posterior). Is it a hard lump? Does it move around? How big is it? Is it near the elbow or the wrist? If close to the wrist, it is probably a ganglion.

  • I am 38 years old and have 2-3 lumps in my left forearm, posterior. They are close to my elbow and hurt when I twist my hand or stress the muscle in any way. I have also just added another lump below the previous ones. I just noticed it a month ago. This one is somewhat pointy and small. None of them hurt when I touch them. But I have noticed my arm has a very faint crease above the new lump. Answers anyone?
