Arm lumps
So, about 3-5 weeks ago I started working out again. I've been using creatine in case that's of any importance. Maybe about a week or two in I started working on my forearms more. I noticed one day after a hard forearm workout that I had a small lump on the muscle. I didn't really think much of it. So I continued working the muscle for a few more days, then I noticed a smaller lump a little above the original one after I got done working out. I'm just curious what it could be. A couple people have told me that they've had something similar and all it is, is a muscle tissue build up that will eventually go away. I've continued working out and haven't got any new bumps that are noticeable, but when I do work my forearms the lumps are much more visible. They also stand out when I flex my forearm. They do not hurt and they're soft, I can push them down with my finger. Anyways, I'm just curious what this could be.

Re: Arm lumps
I have never heard of or seen that, sorry! However, one of the best pieces of advice that I get (and find incredibly hard to follow) is: If it is not physically bothering you, you don't have other symptoms or pain, etc. try not to sweat it. However, if it is stressing you out, maybe you can just pop in to your doctor and let them have a look. Perhaps they will reassure you.

I hope you find your answers!
