Cyst: Most likely an inclusion or sebaceous cyst. These are benign cyst that contain a white sebaceous material similar to that of a black head. These can become infected and present as painful lumps much like the cyst in this picture. Often times gentle pressure may express the material. If the lump is enlarging or becoming tender, have it evaluated.

Here are some. ..: What you described is not enough to know if the hard lump is in the scrotal wall or really inside the scrotum because many laypersons tend to describe a lump in the scrotal wall as in the testicle. If in scrotal wall, such hard lump is most likely a sebaceous cyst which may develop superimposed infection like a boil. If inside the sac, it requires a direct look and palpation to. .. + / - US for Dx

Seek medical advice: Based on what you describe I would just leave it alone for now and go see your doctor. If you continue to manipulate this lesion you may make it worse.

Why do I get a painful hard white lump in my throat when I occasionally eat?

Why do I get a painful hard white lump in my throat when I occasionally eat?

Hard throat lump: There are many causes dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing. Major obstructions like enlarged tonsils can cause this. Reflux disease can also cause it, as well as an embedded foreign body. Finally, there are some anatomic deformities which can lead to symptoms, including diverticular disease of the upper digestive tract. It is wise to see a phyisican--gi or general surgeon--for an exam.

I have a hard white lump on face above lip. I tried acne medicine and heat compress and its still there. Its been four weeks.?

I have a hard white lump on face above lip. I tried acne medicine and heat compress and its still there. Its been four weeks.?

Unwanted lumps: I would assume that after four weeks it is time to see an expert in skin or primary care medicine. You have given it the good try to see if this will disappear on its own. And, unlike many other problems in medicine, often skin issues like this are easily diagnosed with direct examination. Without knowing more I would guess this is a sebaceous cyst. But, without seeing it this one is hard know.

Bone - what else: Not say where it is located. See an oral surgeon. It is not unusual to have a spontaneous growth of bone at a site. A surgeon may want to remove it and look at it under the microscope. I would not ignore it.

Painful lump: It is impossible to diagnose without a visual examination. Any lesion or lump that lasts longer than 10 days should be examined. If it is painful, it should be examined ASAP. See your dentist or an oral surgeon.

Small white hard: Not being there to examine you, it can be either and then again neither. At your age, it is probably nothing malignant. If it is concerning to you, then go see your PCP for him to have a look at it.
