Lymphodoma red, itchy elbow, lumps under skin. Had cellulitis. What is going on?
3 days go i went to the ER cause my right lymphodema was red in spots especially the inside of the elbow and itchy. i wear a compression sleeve every day. was told i had cellulitis . i was put on antibiotics, the dr. sd theres a lump inside the elbow, sd it wasnt a lymph node. all my other lymoh nodes were taken from under the arm etc. due to cancer in 1999. never had a problem w/this arm b4 now. now i notice a few small lumps under the skin above my elbow on the inside, getting concerned, was wondering if other lymph nodes were there
lumps may be due to any infection or due to ur earlier cancer.go to the oncologist get confirmed whether they are ordinary or malignant lumps.As u are on antibiotics,if the lumps are infective origin they get subsided
