I have a pea sized lump below my elbow. Any idea what this could be?

About 10 days ago I noticed a small pea sized lump about 2 below my left elbow on the side of my arm. At first, I thought this was a spider bite, but after 10 days, nothing has changed. The lump does not hurt, is not discolored, and can be moved around if I push it. I noticed that I press this part of my arm on my work chair while at the computer although I do not have a bump on my right arm or anywhere else. Also want to tell you that I play tennis twice a week using my left arm. Any idea what this could be?

thanks for query,
It seems that you might have a small lymph node near elbow.
some times due to ulner nerve irritation may give this type of picture but as there is no sign of nerve pain it is ruled out.
But in your case as you are playing tennis it may be tennis elbow.
Consult your doctor for your problem,but there is nothing to worry.
ok and bye.
