Post lump on inside of elbow

Hi.
I work out alot with weights and I'm fairly muscular. The last couple of months I've noticed a lump on the inside of my right arm near where the forearm meets the bicep. It is really noticeable if I flex my forearm . It does not hurt but I'm concerned it could be a tumor or maybe a cyst. I think I have a real small one on my left arm but it's hard to tell. Does anybody have any info on this? Could it just be an overdeveloped muscle if there is even one there? what about a muscle hernia. Thanks for any responses

Describe the lump.
Is it hard or soft ? Is it encapsuled ? Can you move it or is it attached to the underlying tissue ?

Thanks for the response.
the lump is not hard and is not encapsulated. It feels like I can pinch some tissue but it does seem to be attached to the underlying tissue.

To me this sounds like a lipoma, a benign fat tumor.
Go to a dermatologist and get it checked, maybe he needs to remove it to be sure what it is.
But that's no big deal, I've had many of these things removed. How old are you ? I first got these damn lipomas at the age of 20.

Thanks. I'm 37 and never noticed any lumps before about 3 months ago. What parts of your body did you start getting these and were any of them serious. Do they go away if you leave them alone or do they get worse and bigger?

I first noticed them on my arms. These things don't go away. Lipomas can also grow. I have different sorts of Lipomas, some are small,hard and encapsuled others are a bit bigger,softer and not encapsuled.
Lipomas aren't dangerous, but you should go to a doc and get it checked just to make sure what it is.
