The upper limb is a common site for lumps and swellings. Although many are benign some may be bothersome and some of concern particularly if they grow bigger. The lump may lead to limitation of movement and neurological symptoms.
The upper limb includes the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and humerus and including the shoulder.
Common upper limb lumps includes:
- Nerve sheath tumours
- Vascular malformations
- Fibrous lumps
- Lymph nodes
- Giant Cell Tumour
If you have a lump on your upper limb, particularly if getting bigger or feels deep, please get in touch for assessment.
