Thanks for your query.You have a lumpjust above your elbow joint and you are getting tingling and numbness in your little and ring fingers This is due to pressure over Ulnar nerve which passes in the forearm and located just behind the Elbow joint Please consult some Orthopedic surgeon for clinical examination who will be able to find whether it is a lump from the Ulnar nerve itself(Neurofibroma) or some other lump pressing over the Ulnar nerve.Depending on diagnosis he may guide you about further treatment.
