In regards to my swollen elbow, I cannot upload photo as you requested. No icon on my dashboard. The elbow has a large lump on it the size of a golf ball for past 3 weeks. No pain. Very soft and squishy. Will it go away by itself or do I need to have it pierced and drained? Thank you for your advice.
Thank you. Cannot send photo - no icon to right of dashboard. Three week swelling on elbow is size of golf ball. Soft and pliable. No pain. Should I get it lanced and drained? Or will it subside by itself?
