Bump on Penis: Common lumps on the penis can be from inclusion cysts and scarring from minor trauma (such as circumcison). The lump under the skin may also be either a sebaceous or inclusion cyst that was trapped under the skin by the circumcision.

The : The most important question here is if the lump was present prior to the incident where he bumped his arm. This is a common, the discovery of a lesion that is thought to be from the injury that occurred but was actually present prior to that. The bottom line here is to have your son evaluated by his primary care provider. It may just be a simple cyst or lipoma, however it needs to be seen. Best of luck. ...Read more

This : This is likely a cyst, or possibly an infected hair follicle. The only way to know for sure is to see your family doctor or gynecologist for a complete examination/evaluation. In the meantime you can try soaking in a warm bath with epsom salt three times a day. Only put enough water to cover your buttocks. Also try Ibuprofen for pain if present and to help with inflammation. Best of luck. ...Read more

It is possible...: ... however, a physical exam, blood test, and herpes viral culture will be required to make a definitive diagnosis. Typically, herpes lesions are fluid-filled (called vesicles), may ulcerate, then crust-over becoming more hard. So, it depends on the stage of your lesion. See your doctor for a physical exam or schedule a virtual consult with me for a more thorough evaluation of your symptoms. ...Read more

Bf is 45 has a nickel sized raised very round hard bump under the skin in his armpit very painful has apt tomorrow but we are scared what could it be?

Possible abscess: This is a common location to have an abscess, a local skin infection, which is easily treated by opening it and allowing it to drain, which may hurt briefly, but will release the pressure and there will be less pain afterwards as it drains.. Other causes are possible of course, but that seems most likely. The doctor will sort if out, but it is probably nothing major, depending on your BF's health, ...Read more

Normal lymph node: We have lymph nodes scattered throughout our body & they are often detected in the neck where they sit on top of neck muscles. These nodes are little fluid strainers that take body lymph & remove stray germs from things like bug bites. They are often pea sized at rest & grow to dime sized when working. Within 2-3 wks they often shrink back down unless they are stimulated further.Ask her doc if so. ...Read more

Maybe: Or maybe an inflamed epidermoid cyst. Or maybe an abscess. Complete drainage is the important thing. Usually antibiotics of any kind are not indicated. If it fails to heal promptly you had best see a DR. ...Read more
