Lump on the elbow, numbness in the left hand and fingers. Calcium deposit?

hello i have been googling a few things online trying to figure out what may be the cause of my husbands left hand and fingers to be falling asleep. I am wondering if the lump right below is elbow has anything to do with it. A while ago he was told that it was a calcium deposit, because it rolled around, he was never diagnosied though. Does this have something to do with it, or is he dealing with something else....Please help! Thanks so much!!!
