Q.

Lump in arm

Hi Dr
My 4.6yr old daughter had the MMR and Measles Booster when the vaccination campaigne where launched recently. About two weeks ago I noticed a lump on her left shoulder around the area where she was injected. Can it be from the vaccination???
Please advise!

This lump can be due to the vaccination injection. There may have been some slight bleeding in the muscle when the injection was given. As long as the lump is not red, warm and swollen there is no need for concern and it will disappear with time.
