My elbow is swollen and painful. I think there might be a thorn in my skin/flesh that never got removed. This happened over a month ago so there is no sign on the skin where the thorn might have entered. I can only generally tell by the pain and some lumps where the thorn might be.

I think my 13 year old son had a ganglion cyst on his elbow. Today it got hit with a football and has swelled up and is now a quarter size black and blue hard lump. We put ice on it. I have read that when a cyst ruptures it basically dissolves back into the skin. I am wondering if thus is normal.
