Oncology (General Cancer)/Lump in fore arm

Question
Hi,I am a 27 yrs old male. Few days back I felt a lump in my right forearm between my wrist and elbow (not sure if it was before too and i felt it few days back only). Its small around size of pea (fully comes under the tip of my finger), soft and movable. Its just below my skin as its easily felt through fingers. I am concerned if it is something serious or is a normal lymph node or lump. Kindly provide me consultation on this.

Thanks,

SK

Answer
Hi,
You should get it examined by a surgeon. A Lump which is rapidly growing should be considered as a possibility for cancer. Also you need to check if other symptoms of cancer are present. Read https://sites.google.com/site/drkhalidmunir/pedindex43211
