Recurring itchy lump on the arm, gradually increasing in size and spreading towards the implanon. Is the implanon causing reaction on the skin?

The other day I came across a heat lump typed thing on my arm , Its was quite large and soon after i realised it was near the opposite end of my implant, to where it was fitted. I have now got it again and it is itching quite badly. I was just wondering if the implant could be doing something under my skin and causing a reaction? I ve had the implant for roughly 2 years now. also, the arm it is on is achey.

welcome to HCM
you should go and visit the physician since it is about breast lump. it needs investigations like USG, or mammography to decide the nature and treatment of lump. and also to decide its because of implant or not.

thank you.
