Olecranon bursitis is a condition in which painful swelling develops at the back of the elbow. Here are signs that you may have this condition:
- Swollen elbow (sometimes looking like a golf ball at the tip)
- Warmth around the elbow
- Draining pus
Most times, you feel no pain with olecranon bursitis. The swelling can either be gradual or happen at once. Sometimes, it can be painful if the bursa is infected.
