Please get it.,,,: Checked. A growth is concerning. However the fact that it's painful makes me think it might be epididymitis (inflammation of the sperm ducts) rather than a tumor. Either are treatable, but you need to catch the latter early. Good job on doing self exams! ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining the lesion. What you described suggests a wart. You may wish to try over the counter treatment for a wart, if that does not help, it would be useful to see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Lymph node: There are thousands of lymph node located around the body that help screen out germs in the body serum before it returns to the circulation. There are many in the neck, head, behind the ear. At rest these are often 1/4 inch in diameter and may grow to marble sized when reacting to a stimulus. Bug bites, or viral infections can increase their size. They should shrink down to nl size over a few wks. ...Read more

I have one bump on my upper lip! It has been there for 3 to 4 days! It came to a head and I popped it!! Now it is a flat hard spot! It does itch so I assumed it was a cold sore but it's not a blister or a cluster just one bump??

Sounds like you: May have a MUCOCOELE a small mucous containing
cyst which originates on the line joining your lip tissue
and your skin! It should slowly resolve but if persists ask your Dentist for a referral to an oral/plastic surgeon for excision!

Hope this helps!

Help-What is this hard red bump (enlarged pea size) on my breast (upper inner area-not near nipples, no discharge, sore to touch)right under skin?

Needs to be checked: Any new breast lump, bump or skin changes needs to be examined by your doctor. Usually these findings are benign but they need to be evaluated to be sure especially at your age. If you feel comfortable you could do a virtual visit on healthtap if you think the pea sized area would be visible on video chat or with an attached image. ...Read more

Itching around nose and mouth. Clear/pink hard bumps around nose and under eyes. Itchy eyes and flaky skin. Also mild sore throat for 2 months. HSV?

Itching around nose and mouth. Clear/pink hard bumps around nose and under eyes. Itchy eyes and flaky skin. Also mild sore throat for 2 months. HSV?

Exam needed.: HSV is unlikely. The redness/itching/flaking is most consistent with seborrheic dermatitis (especially if scalp is also flaky), but that doesn't explain the chronic sore throat. Let your doctor examine you, and perhaps do a throat culture. ...Read more

I have a hard, non-motile, tender, but not red circular bump, 0.25" - 0.5" wide, under my skin, 2 -2.5" above my left temple. I'm 35 and F. Thoughts?

I have a hard, non-motile, tender, but not red circular bump, 0.25" - 0.5" wide, under my skin, 2 -2.5" above my left temple. I'm 35 and F. Thoughts?

A few things: There are various things that can look like this on the skin. The two most common lesions are a lipoma or a cyst (typically a pilar cyst). While these are normally mobile, they can also be non-mobile. There are rarer lesions, such as other soft tissue and bony tumors or cysts. If it is bothersome or growing, I'd recommend having it evaluated by a dermatologist and getting it removed. ...Read more

Headaches: As physicians we try to put all the symptoms and aspects of he history to come together to diagnose a one single condition. However, it is possible that in your case, you are dealing with three different unrelated problems. I am glad you have the appointment scheduled to check the scalp. That is a start. ...Read more

I had a large, sore bump on the back of my head 4 weeks ago. It is still there now but is teeny tiny, like an indentation. Still sore. Should I worry?

Prob OK: Bumps or masses can be from many things. If you ha trauma it is most likely blood. If you did not it possible an lymph node or infection. If it is getting smaller with a residual small bump it is ok. But if you think it is getting larger you should see a doctor about it. ...Read more

Pea size bump under skin was sore for couple weeks. Never bothered me before. Yesterday it reduced size and I have purple/blue color 2 inches around it?

Did it get: Traumatized. Usually purple/bluish discoloration is suggestive of a bruise, or trauma to the local small bloood vessells that leads to blood leaking around the area. If you are really worried about the area, consider having a doctor taking a look at it. It may just very well be a superficial cyst that was inflamed and has some localized bruising, but hard to say without seeing it myself. ...Read more
