want to ask, my right arm hurts on the inside above the elbow like there is a protruding vein about 2cm arises like an elongated vein but it is swollen and hard, the pain feels until the armpits, that’s why I guess? It hurts very uncomfortable
Thank you for the question.
Pain that is felt in the arm to the right inner armpit accompanied by the appearance of swelling like hardened veins may occur due to the following factors:
Varicose veins (swollen veins due to valve incompetence)
Muscle kink (twisted muscle)
Inflammation in the skin, for example due to infection, contact dermatitis, insect bites
Other factors, for example nerve clamps, cellulitis, post-injury, benign or malignant tumors, lymphadenitis, benign or malignant tumors around the arms, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, etc.
The conditions above are mild, but some are dangerous. We suggest that in order to improve, first try to resolve your complaint by:
Rest your hands that are experiencing complaints from excessive physical activity, position your hands higher so that the swelling is reduced
Warm compresses or ice cubes for your armpits to hurt
Apply a pain reliever cream in the painful area
Do not carelessly massage your arms to your armpits
Don't wear clothes that are too tight
Improve your posture when working to stay ergonomic
Do not smoke
Live a healthy diet, multiply fruits and vegetables, limit first consuming foods with bad fat and high salt content
Mild conditions will often improve within a few days after you undergo the trick above. Resting at home and delaying your doctor's examination may be better for you, in order to minimize your risk of contracting dangerous diseases (including COVID-19) in the hospital.
