Movable lump inside elbow crease, intense arm pain, lump in kneecap, have nausea. What could the cause be?

Hi I have found a lump in the inside of the elbow crease, it is movable and was painless up till today, I now have pain in the arm and also I noticed I have a little more solid lump next to my kneecap. I mentioned the lump on my arm to my gp, who seems to think it is from having bloods taken in the past? Confused, today I have felt nausea and irked but think its maybe because I am worrying a lot

Dermatologist 's  Response

The lumps in elbow and knee would be fibromas.

They are benign tumors.

You cosult surgeon for perfect diagnosis and treatment.

Biopsy may be done to reach to the diagnosis.

If they are embarrasing , the may be surgically excised under local anaesthesia.

And you can be free of swellings.

You are right, nausea might be due to tension and mental upsets.

However, you consult physician.

I hope you got my answer.
