Button on the front appeared rapidly (4 weeks) skin color wt small symmetrical colored spots, bulging, roughened, mole size? Could that be a melanoma?

Lateral canthus on left eye inflamed w/white speckles. Area consistent with lacrimal gland seems inflamed too. No firm surface, just bulging. Cancer?
Dark gray #14 tooth. Bump between hard palate and maxilla bone. No tooth pain. Hurts to press hard on bump. No discoloration of palate. Bump is spongy?
Abcesses: It sounds like you may have an abcess. The fact that your tooth is discolored is consistent with this finding. The tooth may be non-vital ("dead"), and the pain and sponginess may be due to the abcess enlarging and the pus attempting to exit from under the tissues that cover the hard palate. Contact your dds as soon as possible and keep the area clean. Warm salt water rinses should help today. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hard painless lump under skin on thigh. No pain, circular, large (lil bigger than a nickle), no discoloration/head/ripple/visual deformity, see a doc?
If it is soft,: mobile fluctuant or slightly dense, and does not hurt then it's most likely a lipoma. If you decide to have a healthcare professional look at it, that should confirm it. Of course there are other bad things that could cause a well defined lump on bone or under skin. Thanks for using HealthTap. ...Read more

Can contraction of SCM cause temporary bulging in external jugular vein? Bulge is painless, soft, <1 cm. No bulge when muscle is relaxed.
Not normally: No, not normally. Contracture of the SCM would not really affect the jugular vein unless you contract it to the extent that increases the pressure in the venous system which causes venous distension in general. You may have a sift tissue growth superficial to the SCM that then becomes more prominent as the muscle contracts. Don't hesitate to be seen for it. ...Read more
Quarter-sized lump on inside of thigh, surface is smooth, shiny, light purple. It's hard, goes quite deep under skin. Slightly tender. No drainage.
Cyst: This may be a sebaceous cyst if it is the only time you have had this. Many people can get multiple of these in the same area over the years. I would not recommend trying to squeeze it because it will make it worse. Apply warm compressses for 10 min twice a day. If very sore see your md for antibiotics that will improve the symptoms even though it is not a true infections. ...Read more
Does bulge soft spot in 10 mths a sign for hydrocephalus due to IV hemorrhage. No other symptoms. Neurologist wants to wait for next appt in 3 weeks ?
Hydrocephalus: Sounds scary. An ultrasound can be done. Has the head circumference increased more than usual? Is the soft spot compressible? Perhaps it would be wise to check with your pediatrician to see if an appointment before that time would be beneficial. I imagine the neurologist may want to see unusual growth of head circumference prior to referring to a pediatric neurosurgeon for shunt placement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Acute pain in calf muscle at a specific spot. I can feel a slight bulge when I touch the spot. The condition exists from several years.
May be injured: This sounds like an old injury to the calf muscle which may have resulted in adhesions (scarring) as part of healing. A new growth must also be ruled out. A diagnostic ultrasound can be ordered, but an MRI would be more useful. It needs to be examined. See a podiatrist, foot/ankle specialist or orthopedist. ...Read more

9-hour flight. Ankle was noticeably swollen. Looks much better after 2 days. Now thigh has bulging spot. Mild aching. No redness or warmth. Doctor?
Deep vein thrombosis: This definitely needs evaluation, because what you describe is consistent with a 'DVT' or deep vein thrombosis. Since you were sitting still for 9 hours, the blood in your legs wasn't circulating well- and that means you could have formed a clot in the leg that is swollen. A doctor can do a quick ultrasound to determine if that's true. Then, you may well need treatment depending on the findings. ...Read more
Why do the vein on the back of my left hand(near knuckle of middle finger)bulge in only one small spot?It happens on and off.No pain.Is it worrisome?
Vein: Veins dilate in association with fluid status. The size of a vein will change in relation to total body fluid, activity of extremity or position of extremity. Pressure on proximal part of vein. As long as the vein does not stay distended should not worry. However if red, tender and firm get checked. ...Read more
Wat does " u have 5 spots on ur spine that r bulging out " mean? should I b worried? I askd but all he said was I'm fine
Not much information: I presume these were disc bulges noted on a lumbar or cervical MRI. It's not uncommon for disc bulges to be noted on MRI studies. It depends on the size and location whether these are significant lesions. In most cases, this finding is normal or at least common for your age group but must be considered in conjunction with your symptoms and exam findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
