Lump deep under skin

Common Questions and Answers about Lump deep under skin


Avatar f tn A few days ago while I was in the shower I noticed this bump on my bikini line. I decided to try to pop it and eventually it did, but now I look at it and there is a uncomfortable hard lump underneath my skin where the bump originally was. I'm not sure what it is could it be a ingrown hair, cyst, growth or something worse?

Its very painful especially when I sit.  There used to be a month. Its very painful especially when I sit.  There used to be pimples there but they went away and now I have this hard ball like lump under my skin, but u can't see it except there is some discoloration like a pimple. its about the size of a marble and it hurts.

371240 tn?1198742202 I cannot say how long I have had this lump. But I do know since I was 26 years old, I experienced tenderness in my left upper thigh at least once a year. I am now 46 and completely forgot about it until recently. I was moisturizing my skin and noticed a lump in my upper inner thigh area that is soft to the touch but never moves from its spot. About a month ago, I developed tenderness in my left thigh and had no idea why.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm. 18 years old and about a month in a half ago I notice a small painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> arm. It was painful for the 2 weeks but no longer hurts anymore. I can tell that it under the skin and it is slightly hard. It use to hurt when I put on deoderant. I had stop puting on deoderant for a while but only thing happend was the pain went away. I have I history of breast cancer in my family. Someone anyone please help I'm in deep need of in advice right now.
Avatar n tn Okay, I noticed this last night after riding my horse bareback - I doubt that has nothing to do with it, but I strained the muscle which is under the lump - it no longer hurts, but it did for a while and then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> appeared. It is about the size of a grape. It is deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span>, and under a vein, from as far as I can see. It is right on my bikini line. It only hurts when I touch it or something else touches it, although I do feel slight pain now when I walk.
1687669 tn?1305625406 4 months ago I fell and cut the skin of my eyebrow, it wasn't significant, only about 8mm in length but quite deep. It healed fine but as soon as the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> healed there was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> underneath. The lump is very hard and slightly sensitive. I imagine it's just scar tissue - I have other scars that are keloid so perhaps my skin heals that way?? I'm wondering if this is normal. I'm 20 and relatively healthy.
Avatar n tn it isnt on the vagina but just beside it, its not sore but i had some discomfort and checked it out. it feels like it deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span>. im petrified incase its cancer, can you give me some advice please?
Avatar n tn My 53 year-old husband has a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> the size of an egg deep in his right armpit that only recently sort of popped out. By that I mean when he holds his arm up over his head, the distortion is noticeable. He found it a few months ago, but it was much smaller and sort of recessed. Now it is much bigger and painful the way a strained muscle is---it only hurts when he carries things or moves in a certain way.
Avatar n tn Hello, The lumps that you are having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the jaw can be due to swollen lymph node but the lump on the chin looks like an infected hair follicle or a boil. Please keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed.
Avatar n tn i am experiencing the same thing with little not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> that are painful and swollen and red what are they
Avatar n tn I recently felt what feels like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my sternum, it feels like its connected to my sternum and only way i even relized he was there was because i was feeling around my stomach area one day. It really doesnt bother me but lately ive been noticing it more and more. I dunno if its all in my head just because i found it. Im just wondering if I should go see a doctor, ive read of the xiphoid process and im not sure if thats what it is.
Avatar n tn the only way i can discribe it now is it looks like a wart i tried to squeeze it again and doing so the spot/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> looks it is coming away from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> in one it looks like it is attatch deep inside like roots or some thing and im affraid that if pull to much the whole thing will come out leaving a big hole and bleeding i am quite worried now and have a fear of going to the doctors.any advise would be extremly greatfull.
Avatar n tn The only thing they ,nor her Doctor could answer is why this nodule started out strictly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> , deep, and there was never any cut or scratch, so it got infected on it's own from the lump under there. It can't come to a head bcuz it's underneath. Well, tehy put her on a strong sulfa antibiotic, and it has helped alot and things are so much better! The swelling is down, she has several days left on that RX.Hopefully, the nodule that stated it will heal as well.
Avatar n tn ,however, it is still a hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> especially <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span>. Should I be alarmed or not? I think if it doesn't go away by Monday I will go back to the doctors. Is it normal to still be a large lump even after the drainage? Could it be cancer if it doesn't hurt?
Avatar f tn My Dog (pyrenean moutain dog) is being treated with antibiotics for a deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> infection under her front leg. The infection is very slowly starting to look a nicer colour but it is still very sore and is weeping and bleeding after 2 weeks of treatment. This evening she has started breathing very heavily and panting. We phoned our vet who asked us to check the colour of her gums, feel if her paws were warm and count her heartbeat - all of which she said was ok.
Avatar m tn The past week i've been dealing with a hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> underneath the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> located in my lower back. It's embarrassing to say, but it's actually located about an inch down inside of my butt-crack and is on my right cheek, almost but not quite, in the center of the crack. It's about the size of my thumbnail and it hurts when I sit down or lay on my back. I had my mother look at it so see if it was a pimple or a boil, and she said she couldn't see anything that looked wrong.
Avatar n tn The results of the CT are back. Apparently the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the clavicle is arhtritis. It didn't show anything unusual with the lymph nodes, although I can still feel them swollen in my arm, inner thigh and lower abdomen. It showed a granuloma in the left lung. I haven't had much luck researching this to figure out what exactly it is and what should be done about it. I am considering calling the Dr.
Avatar n tn I also have a pea size <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on the left side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> of my vagina .. i ma onli 14 and very worried .. is it any thing serious you think ? .. i am not sexualy active so its nothing to do with sexual infections or anything dont think .... im thinking of going to doctors ... what should i do . please help :( ..
Avatar m tn (im not sure tho cuz well, i have some loose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> so it might just be the fat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span>) I am still a virgin, but i was in moments where it included heavy sexual sensations, (lots of touching but i didnt not insert my penis anywhere or had receive oral.) [Just for confirmation i am a 17 yr old boy] I might just ask my mom to take me to the doctor if there is no progress in the reduction of it but i just need some more information please.
Avatar n tn I'm pretty sure there's plenty of fluid in it, but it is too deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> to try to squeeze it fully. After leaving bump untouched for 4 days it looks like it began to shrink slowly, but no sign of bump coming toward the skin surface. During last 6 months I have had unprotected oral sex, unprotected vaginal intercourse and protected anal sex. I cannot be sure that all of my partners were STD free.
Avatar n tn My scars have healed really well you can barley see them but recently i've noticed a small red lump in the middle of my scar. It feels as if it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> and it's really sore. It seems to have worsened over the last couple of days but this might be because I keep prodding it. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn now, the one, small lump has turned into a lump the size of a large grape and two more small lumps have developed. these are deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> and at first, there was no discoloration of the skin or discomfort. but now, the skin surface above the big one is red and the whole area is very sensitive. i have ruled out the "zit theory", but still think it might just be a "boil" or "rising". reluctant to go to the doctor as most people are. wondering what you think?
Avatar f tn For many years I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span> near my right shoulder blade, on the side near the spine. It sometimes gets large enough to see. Deep massage causes some pain in the lump but it helps the headaches and tension in my shoulders. It does get smaller with massage but never disappears. I asked one doctor and she said it was just a group of fat cells and nothing to be concerned about. However, it causes discomfort more than not.
