Avatar m tn I dont have any moles on my face normally but 6 months ago I started to notice a pimple that turned pink to a flatishish round mole with small lump directly behind on inner cheek This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/243823'>bump under mole?????</a>.
Avatar n tn Keep an eye on it as sometimes it may become dark as original mole or even darker than that. What happens is that melanocytes left behind in the wound regrow in an abnormal pattern. This is accompanied by scarring, inflammation, and blood vessel changes. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.

Hubby was so relieved i felt worse for him than I did for me thinking I might have cancer again. He is such a good man and loves me passionatly. as I do him.
Avatar m tn Hi, I was wondering if anyone could please help me with some advice. I'm beside myself with stress and anxiety over this. I'm going to call and try to make an appointment with a urologist, but I'm sure it will be at least two or 3 weeks before they can fit me in, so if somebody could tell me what this might be, I'm hoping to at least be able to relieve some of my anxiety. The first thing I think anyone thinks when they find a lump is "cancer! :(".
Avatar n tn I have found a small painful lump at the base of my skull on the lower right side--just above the hair line on that bone right behind the ear---seemed to come up yesterday----no lesion or break in the skin or redness--just painful and slightly squishy--I have an appointment with dermatologist in about 2 weeks---does this seem like a dermatologist issue?
Avatar n tn I have a large lump on my rib that is right below my left breast. It is not in my breast but below my breast.I had a tumor removed a year ago in my right breast, which was benign, but this is strange. It is very large and very distinctive. Can you have a tumor on your rib and not in your breast that might be Breast cancer and what do you think it can be. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Avatar n tn After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump. I am so glad that I found this site and that you all have had the same problem, being that I don't have any insurance I haven't been to the doctor for this. Now I am wondering how long it will be before the lump is completely gone since the puss has begun. Please help me.
Avatar n tn I've had this mole in the crease behind my ear for many years but never really knew what it looked like. A month ago I noticed a strange lump next to it and thought it was maybe a pimple, but its grown a lot so now I'm not sure. Ive been taking pictures to keep track and noticed that the mole has a red spot on the top left, and some other smaller ones if you look closely. Could this be skin cancer? Could the mystery lump next to the mole be a lymph node that has swollen because of cancer?
Avatar n tn It also feels like there is a lump behind or on the back of my eye. Note that if I stop for a couple of mins I feel fine once again. Your assistance would be greatly appriciated.
Avatar m tn I am a 25 year old male. I recently had a small lump on my lower back that had little to no pigment removed by shave biopsy and the results came back "traumatized intradermal nevus". About 3 weeks later, dark pigment came back where the spot was. I also had a small mole shaved that came back showing "dysplasia" but the margins were clear, and it too came back with a tiny bit of pigment.
Avatar n tn 3 months ago I had this thing on my buttcheek that felt like a bump/lump but unfortunately, it was so itchy so I picked it off without getting to see what it was. After picking whatever it was off it started to bleed and now it left behind a scabby looking dark patch that won't go away or heal.The top of it looks cloudy and grey like an infection that won't heal. I don't know what it is but looking at nodular melanoma pictures it looks like.
Avatar n tn they called me today to come back in for more detailed pictrues, which showed Microcalcifications, some in an area behind the nipple. The radiologist said they were not fully supsicious, but wanted me to see my doctor right away to undergo a biopsy . Within 2 hours my doctor called me and had scheduled me to see a breast surgeon tomorrow to discuss a biopsy. is this normal for the response time to be so quick? does it mean something really bad or does it mean I have good doctors?
Avatar n tn When I look at the black spot with a magnifying glass, it looks like a tiny round black mole. The area around the black spot is raised and looks like a small cyst. I have had this for at least 3 years with no change in size, color, etc. My wife is concerned it may be cancerous or a precancer. Any suggetions?
248167 tn?1220367290 I've had this small lump on my thigh for at least 5 years (too scared to show my doc, stupid I know). It almost came out of no where. It doesn't have a rigid border but it's not exactly perfectly smooth either. It's tan in color but some days looks a little lighter or darker. It's a little smaller then an "pencil eraser" and it is raised from the skin. It's been the same size for years now. It doesn't hurt at all and it's not hard.
1265027 tn?1284843551 as i was washing myhair the next night i felt a lymph node onthe right side of my neck behind my ear below my hair line. i went to the dr today cause i was a little concerned. he said that it could have reacted to the mole being removed and to not touch it. i know these lymph nodes are the ones that are swollen due to local infection,but has anyone gone through this/? it is not really nig at all, just that i can feel it i can feel its twin on the left side as well.
Avatar n tn My hair has become very brittle and is thining quickly on top. I had this lump come up on my back just about over night. It is about the size of a tinnis ball and between my spine and right shoulder. Doctor said it is a lipoma and nothing to worry about. But it was no there the day before. I had labs done first week of March and every thing was normal. My right hand stays discolored all the time(does not go away). The muscles in my legs ache and twith all the time.
Avatar f tn During this visit he felt a small lump, which he was also not concerned about. I was concerned, so I had that lump removed. All fine, it was benign papilloma. I went back for 6 month mammo on May 21st. The white spot is still there, not changed and he is still not concerned. I am so I asked about an MRI and Stereotactic biopsy was recommended. My concern is this...The breast tissue in my right breast is denser than the left.
Avatar f tn ,which has moved south,abuot 3 inches,and is adjacent to a newer mass which are periodically painfull.Directly behind my gall bladder (and other lumps) is what appears to be a swollen,or thickened lump in my back.In my lower abdomen there is a shooting pain,and now an "anatomical mass" apparently in the musle by the urethra, causes my urine to shoot out straight forward. My feet were swollen for years ,which ater much effort and anti-fungals(!), has dissapated.
168348 tn?1379360675 had a cyst that got infected and ruptured and then formed an infected lump that had to be removed which thankfully was benign but looked like a tumor. Handful of stitches inside and out with that go-around which was mid-March. Cheryl (ThyCa 1/07 ..
Avatar n tn If that's truly what you have, all is fine. However, they can't usually tell from a mammogram that a lump is a cyst. That's why you need the ultrasound. Often the US can distinguish between different types of lumps. If they're still not sure what it is after US, or if it is suspicious, they'll want a biopsy. Just remember, most lumps are benign.
168348 tn?1379360675 My 2 cents (its been worse than child birth) I think the vommitting on night no 1 probably hurt things, then the ear infection, but I have two cuts as they took out a suspicious mole on my neck at the same time and I am now really self concious about my neck. Stitches are out and there has been some ooz and a small section that looks not closed so trying not to put anything on it. Boy oh Boy what a long story. Thanks for your time.
Avatar n tn Without any break in the skin or infection anywhere at any time, I now have a 2 cm lump at each elbow near the joint and one above one joint about 6mm or so-I know one has been there for over a month, I don't know about the others. I just found a lump behind my knee today. Do you think these are all lymph nodes? I have zippo in my armpits but weakness & fatigue & weight loss w/o trying.
480371 tn?1208210756 Hmm, the problem is, I won't be able to take my dog to the vet until June, because I'm in Los Angeles, and he's in the Bay Area, and my mother has her hands full taking care of my father's medical condition. Thanks for the information though. Do you remember how big the Sty got on your dog? I actually have a picture of my dog's sty, I would love for you to take a look at it if at all possible. Thanks again!
Avatar n tn It is painfully if I squeeze it and around the lump my vagina feels bruised. The pain goes out from the lump to the outer groin and beginning of the leg...So it could be linked to glands in the groin.
Avatar n tn I was fine untill a couple of months ago, when I woke up with a lump in my anus the size of a pea that hurt like hell. I looked it up in THE BOOK and came across anal cancer! Imagine my panic. Naturally, I started palpating myself all over and found a couple of tendons on the edge of my rib cage that were painfull (in hindsight I believe it was all that palpating). Right, so now there was liver and lung cancer to panic about (the lump has shrunk after I applied some hemorrhoid cream).
Avatar f tn i have 3 small children and the thought of leaving them behind makes it 100 times worse. i am currently afraid to death of palate cancer. i found with my tounge (cant see it much) a small lump on the roof of my mouth about 7 months ago. i went to the dentist, primary doc and an ent and they all said im i quit worrying for a long time! Phew right??? nope...i rediscovered it again just a couple weeks ago...went back to the ent...
