I have a small firm bb sized lump under my skin, what could this be?

More info-? cyst: Although it would be useful to know more about this- where is it, how long has it been there, does it hurt, is there redness in the area, etc. That said, it may be a sebaceous cyst, which is quite common, and presents as a small lump under the skin. A cyst is not painful unless it becomes infected. I recommend you see your doctor or your dermatologist for definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

I have a small bb size knot (actually feels like a small bb) under my skin on my penis, what could it be?

Cyst or other: Hello mikek, a small bb size knot is generally a benign cystic lesion as a result of trauma, blockage of ducts, or inflammation. Rarely, it can be a malignant lesion. I would advise having a physician lay his or her hands on the skin of the penis itself, sooner rather than later. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Sounds innocent: You probably just have a small pimple or cyst in the skin of your neck. I would refrain from squeezing it again. If it does not resolve in a few weeks, you should see your physician and may need referral to a surgeon for excision. ...Read more

Have a bump under my skin at base of middle finger. Started th size of a BB has gotten bigger nd hurts. Any ideas?

"ganglion" cyst: Most such masses at the base of the finger on the palm side are cysts along the tendon. They are due to weak area within the wall of the sheath around the tendon that bulge out, much like a weak spot in an inner tube. They can change in size, bigger and then smaller. They can be removed, but often will resolve all by themselves (I had one in the exact same place, disappeared after a year). ...Read more

I'm a 24 year old circumcised male. I recently noticed a small bump on the underside of the shaft of my penis, about halfway down. It is about the size of a BB, doesn't hurt or itch, seems attached to the skin above, and is easily moved around.

See in real life: Skin bumps can sometimes be diagnosed via video. A patient can try HealthTap PRIME for a virtual consult (there is a fee). Otherwise, one's primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine the bump. It could be a closed comedone, a plugged sebaceous gland or follicle, an unusual mole, or less likely a wart. It may be best to get it examined, so that the doctor gets the texture and feel of it. ...Read more
