Hello everyone,

I noticed pain in my upper left arm where it feels like I got a shot or bruised. Now it only hurts when I touch it in one spot. It’s not very painful and it only hurts when I touch it. It feels like I might have pinched a nerve and the pain is only in one spot. This came out of no where and I haven’t damaged my arm (that I know of) I’ve noticed no lump or swelling. I’m so scared of sarcoma! Please is his something that needs to be looked at by a doctor? It does not bother me when I sleep nor when I move my arm. Thanks.

Hello bran_sun! I don’ t know how did you come to this conlusion, that you might have a sarcoma, but I should advise that you see your GP first, be reffered for some tests and eventually have an MRI done. Try this steps first! Best of luck!

Hi Bran_sun

I am still in the process of discovering if my tumor is an osteochondroma or an osteosarcoma. But the first step in determining is usually an x-ray. Since these are bone tumors, they show up quite well. I'm not a doctor, but the pain I get from my tumor is deep, and achy, and I have swelling where it is. If you are concerned, just describe it to your doctor and see what they say.
