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.

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
