Lump found on outside area of upper arm

Hello - I am a 36 yr old female. Today I found a rather large lump on my left outer arm. It is not in the armpit. It is more on the outer part but not on the very outside. Sorry not to be more clear. When you flex your musle is above that towards the armpit.

Has anyone had a large lump in this area? Could it be a tumor/cancer. Has anyone been diagnosed with cancer in their arm???

Re: Lump found on outside area of upper arm

First, do not panic. Next, check the other arm to see if there is one in the same spot on the other side. Next, if it is painful, itching or is gathering fluid, see your doctor. There are many things it can be. Lipoma- fatty tumor(even if you are overall skinny) a bug bite, a blood vessel, a place where you bumped yourself and forgot about it. If it is still there and you are still scared see your doctor.
