good night, a few years ago I was sentenced to a tumor of a blood vessel, and had been operated on, it turns out that now there is a lump in the arm near the armpit, the lump is not large but it is greenish like a vein, and sometimes it hurts, the hands also like it weak, is it the same disease, is it dangerous?
Thank you for the question.
There are many types of blood vessel tumors, some are benign, some are malignant. Symptoms of blood vessel tumors themselves can vary depending on the type and severity, such as hemangiomas, hemangiosarcomas, and so on. Therefore, it should be clarified first exactly what blood vessel tumor you experienced before? And what surgery was previously undertaken?
The appearance of a purplish green lump like veins that builds up in the arm near the armpit which sometimes feels painful and makes the hand weaker when used can indeed indicate the growth of your tumor. Some types of vascular tumors are known to reappear despite surgery. But other than that, it may also be a lump as you experience due to other factors, such as keloids, skin tags, skin infections, hyperkeratosis, lymphadenopathy, benign or malignant tumors originating from other tissues (other than blood vessels), and so on.
Without checking you directly, it is certainly not our authority to ascertain the potential danger from the lump you are experiencing. Our advice, if the lump does seem alarming, enlarges quickly, also causes discomforting pain or weakness, it's a good idea to check back with your doctor or surgeon for a more in-depth evaluation, yes. To detect the potential for danger, in addition to checking physically It is also possible that the doctor will recommend that you undergo a biopsy.
In the meantime, it is recommended that you not over-manipulate the lumps that appear. Improve your personal hygiene, compress warm lumps when it hurts, and do not carelessly give treatment to these lumps without doctor's advice.
Hope this helps ...
