Lumps And Bumps Anyone?

I have had on my right arm in the crease of my elbow, usually where your blood is drawn, a lump that my Endo said to ask my G.practioner about; he said it was a fatty tumor and if it changed to tell him, It has gotten larger and seems to cut off blood flow. (it cannot be used to draw blood any longer) When I had blood drawn last week from my left arm, the tech said that I have another growth on the my left arm; same place. I cant seem to get a Dr to take me seriouse on those; any one else suffer from this? I would love to hear from you.

My Mom has them all over, a number in her arms and legs. They're not dangerous, but it might be a good idea to see a dermatologist so you can know for sure what they are.

Re: Lumps And Bumps Anyone?

I have them all over. I had a very large "fatty tumor" that was pressing on my spine, and causing some numbness, so had it removed. Otherwise, they are pretty harmless. Also, I have little bumps that hurt really bad when pressed - don't know what they are called, but they seem to be common in some people with "Fibromyalgia."

I go to a massotherapist to have them kneaded out, but there are so many. Mainly, I just ignore them.
