Neoplasms (Definition)

"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

I have extra bone in my head skull bump like a bone tumor?

I have extra bone in my head skull bump like a bone tumor?

Unlikely: Bone cancer is rare, so it is likely not a cancer right out of the gate. Where is this lump, behind the ear? If so, it's likely normal anatomy (mastoid process). No skull is completely without irregularities, if you have symptoms such as pain, headaches, or increase in size would get it checked out, if not there's probably nothing to worry about. ...Read more

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?

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

I have a small black bump on my head, also its kind of squishy. What could this be?

"Blackhead": Basically a stopped up oil gland! Very common around your nose or on the back of your neck! Be careful with it because it can become infected by continuing to mash on it! Warm soaks can help, if it continues to concern you see a dermatologist! ...Read more

Have a small bump below skin (pea size, gets bigger when I bend back). The area has a black and blue mark above thebump hurts now and then.what is it?

The most likely: explanation is that you have a benign lipoma (fatty accumulation below the skin) with, coincidentally, a bruise near it. But there are some more serious kinds of bleeding or skin problems that have an ecchymosis or bruise associated with them. It would be best if you could have your doctor or a skin specialist/Dermatologist take a look at this. Make an appointment. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Small red itchy bump came up then got larger developed white head then bright red and painful. Got black crus.Then several more came up in same area.

Folliculitis: Small itchy red bumps that then develop a white head and appear in crops may be an infection of the hair follicles called folliculitis. Folliculitis is commonly caused by bacteria on the skin. Warm compresses may be applied to the rash but often it will resolve on it's own. Avoid shaving the affected region until the rash clears. ...Read more

I have this small bump on my upper inner thigh that kinda looks purple black and brown. And the skin is red an inch all around it what is this?

Purpura: Purpura occurs when small blood vessels join together or leak blood under the skin. When purpura spots are very small, they are called petechiae. Large purpura are called ecchymoses. Platelets help the blood clot. A person with purpura may have normal platelet counts (nonthrombocytopenic purpuras) or low platelet counts (thrombocytopenic purpuras). See your doctor. ...Read more

Yes: You describe symptoms of a closed head injury or tbi, and i advise that you not delay an evaluation by your md or by a local emergency room dept. To be reassured that something more serious is not going on, a exam will help to determine this. A subtle fracture or hematoma can be serious. ...Read more
