Can you tell me more about it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Like what ? Its small and just on the upper arm area

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Like how long has it been there? Is it soft or hard? Is it moveable? How large is it? And where exactly on the arm is it located?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

About 3 months . I noticed after I gave birth back in July.

it is hard is say and fairly small.

Could be a cyst right ?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Most likely yes, especially if it is just under the skin. Those are benign and of no consequence but the can get larger in time and sometimes they get infected. If it's bothersome it's an easy matter to excise it under local anesthesia but since I can't examine you you need to have a doctor take a look at it.
