Inner Elbow Pain

For a while (possibly a year or maybe longer) the inner part of my left elbow (bone protruding closest to my body)has been super sensitive to touch. It comes and goes-but comes more than it goes. I work on a computer all day (have for 9 years now) and i am right-handed.  I don't do anything strenuous.  It doesn't hurt when i use my left arm-only when i touch it, rub across it,etc....nothing on the outside looks noticably different from my right inner elbow.

I have been racking my brain trying to figure out a time when i have hurt it,etc...but can't come up with anything.  A couple of things that i do know is 1) i sleep with my left wrist tucked in & 2) i just had an "abnormal" mole removed via "punch biopsy" on Monday & the location of the mole is on the top of my left arm directly above where this pain is located.

Any ideas?

What is your age? Since when have you noticed these symptoms? What work do you
do? Does it involve a lot of movement or rotation at the elbow joint or constant
pressure on the elbow for long hours? Is the swelling on the inside or outside
of your elbow joint? Do you remember  any history of trauma or injury to the

This could be - tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, olecranon bursitis or synovial
cyst of the elbow joint.

'Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful
and tender. It's a condition that is commonly associated with playing tennis,
though the injury can happen to almost anybody.
The condition is more formally known as lateral epicondylitis ("inflammation to
the outside elbow bone"), lateral epicondylosis, or simply lateral elbow pain.'

'Golfer's elbow — also known as medial epicondylitis — is similar to tennis
elbow. But it occurs on the inside — rather than the outside — of your elbow.'
You could read more about this at the following link -

'Olecranon bursitis is inflammation of the bursa overlying the olecranon process
at the proximal aspect of the ulna. The bursa is located between the ulna and
the skin at the posterior tip of the elbow.'

It would be advisable to consult your doctor for a confirmed diagnosis and to
plan the further management.
