    Hi all,

    I had a small bruise appear on the bone of my arm (between wrist and elbow) a couple of weeks ago.

    I thought nothing of it as I bruise easily and often get bruises even though I don't recall bumping the area.

    However over the past few days, the bruise is still there but somewhat faded but there seems to be a hard lump there now which is starting to hurt.

    I'm *sure* I didn't bang it on anything - what could it be? Any ideas?

    Love Bunchy x

    Over the years I have noticed several lumps beginning to appear. Since I was getting so many, I went to the dermatologist. They took it out and it was a "fatty lipoma". Fatty cyst is what they said. Not harmful. They said probably it is genetic. Found out that my mom has them too. Mine would kinda roll around like a marble under my skin. I would have the first one taken out just to ensure it is not harmful.
