Could This Little Black Skin Bump Be A Tumor
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
Beneath my penis glans there is a little blue bump more noticeable during erection. it is painless. could it be tumor? also my penis hurts sometimes
Likely Just a vein: What you are describing sounds like a normal penile vein, a thrombosed (clotted) vein, or ruptured capillary bed. Any of these are benign, and the latter two may be due to excessive friction. I would recommend abstaining from sex or masturbation to see if your penile pain resolves. See your clinician if pain persists or worsens, or if blue bump gets larger (not if stays the same). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could a large solid bump at the base of my tongue be a tumor? It is far back, almost into my throat and touch my uvula. I have a sore throat too and my tongue is a little sore. I have noticed it before but it seemed to have gone away.
Need Consultation: Too many variables present to just wait. Get and appointment with and oral surgeon for an evaluation (possible biopsy) of this bump.

Are the lumps in my legs fatty tumors or what? I have several lumps/bumps under the skin around my upper thigh area. One is near my panty line, it is about the size of the tip of my thumb and hard but does not hurt. It's been there probably 8 or 9 years
Fatty : Fatty tumors (or lipomas) are usually not hard. They are usually soft and squishy. If you have a hard mass along your lower panty line that could be a chronically inflammed inguinal lymph node. Can't determine what they are through this venu. Recommend that a family doctor or dermatologist examine you and determine what the lesions are. ...Read more
Tiny Bump near vessel just under skin in arm, area and vessels clear on MRI & xray.Can MRI miss sarcoma tumor? What else can be if imaging is normal?
Not sarcoma: Sarcoma unusual just under skin. Only such lesion would be leiomyosarcoma arising from venous structure More common would be a small thrombotic site in one of the veins associated with other veins in this region. If site small it would not show up on scans. Rather one could use warm soaks to see if resolution occurs over a few weeks. Otherwise small firm lipoma is the existing lesion. ...Read more
Afraid skull's coming apart or growing tumors around temporalis. Dr says i'm just anxious/noticing asymmetrical bumps/cracks/dents. Always tender. Cracks are small, but feel deep. Bump's above ear.
Seek Diagnostic Eval: It sounds like you are being tormented by intrusive thoughts that are really scaring you. I'd recommend seeing a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist for some careful diagnostic detective work. These thoughts are certainly anxiety provoking but they may be best characterized as symptomatic of something other than an anxiety disorder, per se - like obsessive-compulsive disorder (ocd). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
