i have serveral lumps on my upper arms, which have been there all my life. there is one lump on the inside of my upper left arm that is rather large, about two inches from the armpit.What could this be?
Hi. Can you provide a more detailed description of your lumps, such as the size, consistency (hard or soft?), and the rate of growth (has the size stayed the same, or has it grown rapidly in a short period of time?). Offhand, if you've had those lumps for a long period of time (that's my assumption, since you said they have "been there all my life"), they're probably not cancerous. If the lumps bother you, have them evaluated by a doctor to see if they're anything serious.
