Hi, I have a lump in the crease of my left arm, I've seen a doctor previously who suggested it would be a fatty deposit. Recently however the lump has grown a twin that runs parallel to the original lump but feels to be separate. Could this still be explained as a fatty deposit or cause for concern?

Thanks for your query.

Yes, this could be explained as a fatty deposit too, but this is not enough to not cause any concern. A certain diagnosis may be done only through biopsy.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.
