Its really small, about the size of a pea. You can't see but it can be felt. I don't recall every having a needle in that arm, although I could be wrong. Its near to my shoulder but there isn't a lump on the other arm.
Is it something worth bothering the Dr about or am I just being a complete wimp? It makes me cringe when I touch it. I know I'l probably be told not to touch it then but I worry about any lump.
If it will worry you that's good enough, think you should go ask the GP.
I have a pea-sized lump in my leg, it has been there for years, and seems to go up & down in size (a little). I haven't seen a doctor, but then, it doesn't worry me.
Tb is on the other arm. I'm sure it disappears sometimes, I can spend ages feeling for it but can't find it so think it has gone.
Then a few days later I might touch my arm and its there without trying to find it.
Thanks for your advice everyone, I will make an appt to see Dr and I won't feel like I am wasting their time.
