    Default Full Swelling Examination Videos

    A lump or swelling is a common presenting problem. A lump may also be found by the examining clinician in the course of routine examination. A methodical approach to history and examination, with particular emphasis on inspection and palpation, is usually important in the correct description and initial diagnosis of a lump. This initial diagnosis will enable a management plan to be formulated and discussed with the patient. Management may range from explanation and reassurance to urgent referral for surgery.

    Generally, lumps fall into one of the following aetiological categories:
    • Congenital or acquired.
    • Traumatic.
    • Inflammatory (acute or chronic).
    • Neoplastic (benign or malignant, primary or secondary).
    • Other (degenerative, metabolic, parasitic, hormonal disorder).

    It will usually suffice to describe the size, shape and consistency of the lump succinctly; however, the following is a more thorough outline of the examination. It is important to try to ascertain the anatomical plane or origin of a lump. It may be in the skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, tendon, or bone, or arise from an internal organ.
