May be nothing, but worth visting a doctor if you are concerned. Could be a ganglion which is like a flixible protrusion at a joint, thats not serious but can cause discomfort.

I had something that sounds like that a long time ago and it was tennis elbow.Can't remember much other than I think it went away on its own.

I would keep an eye on it for a couple of days and if it's still there, I would say you need to see your doctor to have it checked out. It could be something like a boil which I get quite a lot. Boils and abcess's are very prone to growing on your arms or legs.

They only occur on hairy parts; the crook of the arm isn't generally hairy. Is it painful?

Does it hurt when you press it ?

If so, it could be a carbuncle, these are caused by a staphylococcal infection.

Hello Worrier,

If I tell you not to worry you will, so worry, go to your doctor who will smile and say you have nothing to worry about and this is quite common.

I have one, pea size on the back of my knee.
