Hi all, last monday I found a starange lump under my arm more towards the edge of my arm pitt on the outward edge, I have Lupus, serisitis,hymermobility, etc. I went to see the doc last week, thinking it was a lymph node as one was up in my neck and been really rough the last fews weeks, thought i was wasting my time but i was suppised when she told me Lupus patients need to watch for anything new and come straight to see the doc, she had a look and said it wasnt a lymph node, maybe a swollen tendon, but then she said there would be pain? which i havent got under there. its a fixed lump not hude but you can feel it. shes ordered FBC and ESR which will be back monday, she said " if its shows normal" (wont they not be normal with my lupus anyway)..if they come back ok she wants to send me for a scan i am very baffled and wounder what it could be..its not hurting but the under side of my arm running from my armpit to my wrist the skin raw and is supper sesitive and sore..She said this could be for the inlamation of a tendon. has anyone ever had this. would be gratefull of any advise. Dos is aways for a week and wont be seeing her time she comes back from her holiday in a week. She rung me thismorning to say she was going to be away to ring next tuesday for the result but dont go to see another doc for results to wait for her and she will see me the day she comes back. Im worried now and baffled..x thank you
