User rating for this question
Hi I have a hard lump right of the inner crease of my right arm that is about 5mm in size. It has been there for about 2 months and last week when I had a infection in my testicle the bump tripled in size and and got red. I just want to make sure it is nothing serious being that it is right where my lymph node would be.
