Small lumps on arms and legs
I have noticed small lumps on my inner forearms and in the crook of my arm, near the main artery. They are about the size of small capsules and the one on the inside of my elbow is sometimes painful. What do you think these are?

Now I think I'm getting scared...

HeFFaLuMP, it is difficult to say without being able to examine you first, but it sounds like it might be due to swollen lymph nodes. The best would be to see your doctor and have him make sure it isn’t due to something serious. Good luck.
