Acne Bump?: There are several diagnoses one should consider with a bump on the face, including swollen acne cysts, and other forms of cysts which can occur there. One of the greatest assets possessed by your dermatologist is his or her eyes, and we always ask patients with questions like this to let us "lay an eyeball" on the cyst or spot. In short, you should really show this to your doctor if it persists.
