What causes a sudden swelling and tenderness near the cubital nodes?
NSAIDs alone would suffice
Hello and Welcome
I appreciate your concern
Muscle sprain leading to stress on tendon/ ligaments can lead to swelling and pain. Acute onset of such swelling with pain makes it unlikely for this to be a malignant cause.
NSAIDs , local icepacks and physiotherapy alone would suffice. If the pain persists then the area needs to be examined. X rays can be advised to look for a possible cause e.g soft tissue swelling, arthritis. On examination lymph node enlargement should be assessed and if present the areas draining them should be assessed for any focus of infection.
Wishing you best of health
