Definitely have had nodules - had a large one removed from my elbow and after 3 years is starting to grow back (was told that might happen) Methotrexate can cause them in some people apparently. Nodules do not come and go, that would likely be a ganglion. Neither are a big deal unless they hurt or are interfering with tendons. Worth asking your Rheumy tho. Good luck

I have nodules all over my outer arms. If I stretch my skin you can really see them.
