Sorry I want to ask. When I sat on the junior high school bench, to be exact grade 8 I had surgery for a tumor in my right arm. But a few years later, around 4 to 5 years. The tumor reappeared in almost the same place, only shifted a few inches from before. The surface is not flat or smooth like a normal benign tumor. And it is greenish in color. Sometimes these tumors appear sometimes not, and when I feel pain in the tumor, my arms are numb and if held or pressed it is very painful. My question why is that? Is this a benign tumor like it or any other benign tumor?

Hello Novita,


Thank you for the question.

There are many types of tumors in the right arm, some are benign, some are malignant. Even if they have been operated on, the potential for the resumption of these tumors can differ depending on the type. So, it needs to be clarified first, what tumor are you referring to?


The appearance of a lump that has an uneven surface, greenish color, and feels numb and painful, can occur related to tumors that you have experienced before, or not. Some of the most common conditions that can trigger a lump like this are skin infections (such as bacteria, fungi, etc.), skin tags, keloids, contact dermatitis, benign or malignant tumors, hyperkeratosis, and so on. Some of these conditions can also appear secondary to the former surgery (for example infection or keloid).


If it is true that the lump is causing a very annoying pain, this condition should be examined directly by a doctor, dermatologist, or surgeon for further treatment. In the meantime, you can do it first:

Improve your personal hygiene
Do not squeeze or stab bumps carelessly
Do not also give drugs and any ingredients to the lump without doctor's advice
If it feels painful, compress the lump with warm water

Hope this helps ...
