How long have you had this ? Is it changing or staying the same ? Who told you that it is definitely a lymph node ?

Its been couple of months (more than 3 months). As far as I know its been about the same size. Well, I looked at some anatomy books and from there I concluded that it is probably palpable epitrochlear lymph node. I don't think it is any soft tissue mass or anything like that.
thanks

Has anyone medical looked at it ? How big is it ? Does it hurt ? Does it move frely when you prod it ? Is is hard and stony, or soft and fluid-like ? Any other lumps anywhere ?

no, no one medically looked at it yet. no it doesn't hurt. and size its very small (pea size) but it is hard and stony type. as far as I know I don't have any other bumps like that anywhere else in the body.
thanks

I don;t know how old you are, but a new lump that is painless, hard and stony should be looked at by a professional. I should see your doctor to make sure that there's nothing amiss.

I found out the hard way, that stones can be produced and passed in other areas, other than the kidneys. I had to pass a small "stone" from a salivary duct. It was an excess of calcium in my salivary gland and created the stone. Could this be the same thing? I'm not very medically savvy and could be way off. Never heard of P.E.L.N.
