I have a mass below my elbow. It appeared without immediated cause, It is hard and extends 2 1/2" down my arm, and 1 1/2" across the arm It is about and 1/2" thick. I'd like to hear opinions about its cause , or - really - anything at all. The few doctors who have seen it have no opinion.

  • Well, it could be a cyst (mass of fat and oil) or even a tumor. If it has not grown, or grows slowly, it could be benign (non-cancerous). I, too, have a mass about 6 inches above my left elbow. luckily, it has not grown. now, it's just a nusance.
