I had dx a little over a year ago with lymph removal on the right arm. Since getting back up off the couch, I've noticed that everytime I do anything strenuous for more than say 20 minutes with my right arm, I get these raised lumps under the skin. There's one about two inches from my wrist and one about two inches from my elbow...both between the elbow and wrist.
It's not the whole arm. They can be really small or get quite a bit bigger (2 inches long and about 1/4 inch high) if I keep at the activity. At first I thought it was just an allergic reaction to something in the garden, but then I realized that it happens after I scrub the bathroom as well. (Never have I heard of a better reason not to clean house.)
Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?
I can't find anything anywhere about localized swelling.
