have you had any needles in that area lately? it could possibly be phlebitis(inflamed vein with or without infection) or a varicose vein.
if it is painful in the area you should be checked, and in my opinion i would have it checked if it is there in a few days with no decrease in size
Hello, I am 14 years old and I have this round-like shape bump on my left elbow. I had a IV in my left arm and had fluids for a horrible migraine. The size of the bump is maybe a lima bean size. What should I do? I was diagnosed w/ phlebitis and it feels like more than phlebitis than anything. HELP!!!

I am 16 years old and have this bulge on my vein on my leg when i put my legs up the bulge decreases in size and eventually disapears but when i put any weight on my leg the bulge appears agen, it doesnt hurt at all im worried about what it is and is it dangerous what shall i do?
My son had a knot on the inside of his arm about midway from the elbow to the wrist. He had it for years and I kept telling him he needed to have it taken off. Finally, he went to a surgeon. The surgeon thought it was just a small cyst. It moved so it didn't have any roots. When he cut it open, it had roots and had wrapped around his veins. He didn't even have his nurse in there, but my son's wife was, so he had her bringing him things he needed. It turned out to be quite a mess getting it out. It was not malignant, thank the Good Lord. The old saying that "if it will move it doesn't have roots", is not true. You can't always tell the size by feeling it either. I would go to the dr and have him remove it. If it gets bigger removing it could be worse for you.
Hello- I hope you have the answer to my question. I recently noticed on my right hand a bump/lump on top of the vein (almost an inch away from the wrist ) but it's on top of the hand. My left hand is fine, but I have this problem on the right. Not sure what it can be or how dangerous either. Please advise. Thank you!
I have had the same kind of lump as your son, I will now go have it checked out now for sure, it is starting to hurt lately, I have had it for a long time. Thanks for sharing
