Lump in arm with a stomach pain during eating.

Hi. I am having a difficult time here. One of my relatives discovered a lumb on the middle of his arm (between the armpits and the elbow area, but in front of the arm). In the last 2 months, its size doubled. He went to the doctor to take this away, but the doctor took just one part and said it would be taken to anylise because the "lumb" was bigger than he thought. Now, we are waiting for the response. But I would like to know what could it be. Besides that he has major pain in the stomach while eating sometimes...i don't know, i'm very comfused. Please give me some guidence. Thank you.

Hi,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic
The lump is unrelated to the stomach symptoms. It may be a possibility that after the biopsy he has taken some analgesics which has precipitated gastritis.
As such lump growing rapidly and doctor decided for a biopsy does not necessarily mean a malignancy for which you are worried. You have not mentioned the age of relative which could help me guide you better. However, best is to relax and wait for the biopsy.
Take care. Relax.
