Doctor can evaluate: A middle-aged or older adult with a skin lesion producing mucus and not healing, should see the ENT specialist to find out what it is. It might be a rare cancer called primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin, which is an extremely rare skin cancer originating from sweat glands. The cancer usually occurs on the head and neck, with a commonly involved area being the periorbital region, near the eyes. ...Read more

US shows 1 cm rounded hypoechoic mass w/ internal echoes, debris filled cyst or solid.  CT says either a solid enhanicing or complicated cystic. Cance?

Can be either: A 1 cm. or less than 1/2 inch is rarely identified as a malignant lesion. On US too difficult to define the origin of the hypoechoic signal. One questions the symptoms that might have let the lesion be defined and where is this nodule . Is it superficial, in the abdominal cavity, palpated on neck exam or where else was the lesion defined. If there is suspicion of malignancy then bx. ...Read more

I have a right adnexal ovarian cystic lesion measuring 11.2x10.9x7.7 cm. may reflect a large endometrioma. Sml Amt free fluid in culdesac. How bad is?

I have a right adnexal ovarian cystic lesion measuring 11.2x10.9x7.7 cm. may reflect a large endometrioma.  Sml Amt free fluid in culdesac. How bad is?

Need firm dx: MRI can be helpful to firm up the diagnosis of endometrioma and be an adjunct to ultrasound. MRI may find other lesions. On the other hand laparoscopy has the advantage of getting tissue and performing therapeutics. A small amount of free fluid is non-specific and not unexpected for a cystic lesion of that size. Decisions as to how to proceed require clinical correlation and advice of GYN. ...Read more

My 11 year old has Nonspecific cystic lesion along the inferior margin. Radiologist said Exophytic Cyst or Paraovarian Cyst. Is this bad. ?

Pimples on cheeks won't pop liquid filled soft ?

Manage it: You won't be able to do anything about these other than perhaps use warm compresses. You need to increase whatever you do to manage your acne -- benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid derivatives, prescription-strength medicine from your physician. It's not pleasant, but be persistent with it until it remits on its own. Trying to figure out what makes acne flares is almost never helpful. ...Read more

CT scan shows I have a cystic teratoma/dermoid cyst with an additional 3.5 cm rounded fluid attenuation mass within R pelvis abutting the above mass.

Sorry to hear it. Q?: I'm sorry to hear the scan report. It seems like you could use some support in making sense of all this. Most importantly, do you have symptoms? I don't see a question posed, so please specify what is worrying you about the CT scan report. A teratoma is a (usually) benign tumor or growth. Fluid around the teratoma ("abutting the mass") is not unusual, & could also be b9. TTYD or use HealthTap Pr ...Read more

Mom (46y/o) has small, hard, circular immovable&painless lump on the forehead which appeared during her 20s & diagnosis multiple benign cyst on breast. Help.

Tricky: not quite sure of the question. ithout an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. if the lump is pigmented, some risk of it developing into a cancer. If not pigmented not sure that's even possible. Benign cysts in the breast are not a risk factor of cancer ...Read more
