Hard lump on upper arm, raised area, unbearable pain. What is wrong? Take painkillers?

Hello, I have a hard lump on my upper arm , you can see a slight raised area on the skin but no redness and it is not warm. Its about the size of a grape and i think its touching a nerve as its making my arm numb and the pain is unbearable. Its not very mobile. I have co codomal from the doc and waiting for ultra sound however can be waiting up to 6 weeks. What do you think it might be? It hurts less in the morning but as the day goes on the pain increases. Surely I can t take painkillers every minute of the day till I get the ultra sound? Is that good for you? Many thanks

With this information we can only arrive at Differential diagnosis associated with this condition.

It can be any bony, soft tissue tumor or lipoma which may be impinging on the radial or ulnar nerves of the arm.

An X ray will differentiate it, if it is bony tumor.
