    I would call it a need for urgent care, not a life-threatening emergency.

    Go to an urgent care provider to get a proper answer, since it sounds as though infection may be a possibility.

    It's not, your arm will naturally fall off when it's ready.

    The lump isn’t causing me much concern but any numbness or tingling is not a good sign, particularly if it’s the left. I realise this was 5 days ago, I would have recommended you call 111 for advisement.

    Not an emergency at all. Just leave it alone and it will eventually cause your arm to fall off and you can forget about he little pus filled lump.

    It could mean blood poisoning. If it is, you could die from it.
