rcc in remission-now have lump on upper arm

Hi--it's been quite awhile since I have posted, years actually.  RCC stage 4 with retroperitoneal masses and vena cava resection.  No distant mets.  Have been in remission for about 7 years.  Was on votrient but had to quite 2 years ago because of cardiac complications.   Have been having some nerve type pain in my right hand (same side as rcc) but just wrote it off to arthritis, which I do have.   Today in the shower I found a grape sized lump on my upper arm.  Not painful in and off itself but if I poke at it, it does hurt.  It is under the skin.  No bruising or redness.   It has been so long that I almost got to the point that I didn't think every little ache or pain was somehow cancer related.  Am going to call the oncologist next week.  But part of me says just wait and see if it goes away.  It is a hard lump.  Not sure why I never felt it before.  Does this ring a bell with anyone? Thanks.

Jane
