#ShouldIWorry – Lump On Arm

27 October 2021

#ShouldIWorry if I have a lump on my arm?

A lump on the arm could be caused by several conditions, including trauma, infections, inflammation, or tumours.

Depending on the cause, the size and number of lumps may differ. Additionally, you may not experience any form of pain. The lump may grow rapidly or remain the same size. 

While not all causes of arm lumps are reason to worry, you should pay attention to signs such as pain, the presence of pus, and if it increases in size.

Lumps caused by infection, inflammation, or trauma such as boils, abscesses, and sebaceous cysts are usually temporary and will go away after some time. However, a lipoma will remain in place until it is removed. 

If you notice that your lump persists and continues to grow over time, this may be a sign of a much more serious condition, such as a tumour.  

Both benign and malignant tumours of the skin can present as lumps, and in these cases, a biopsy may be recommended.
