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

My son is 13 and hit his head hard against a wall playing basketball. Is this serious as he has no symptoms and only has a lump that hurts when touch.
Keep watch x24 hours: Fortunately the brain fits more solidly inside the skull of a 13 y/o comparing to a 73 etc... So often bumping head against hard surface causes a big bruise/bump which will resolve. Since he has no other symptom, he should be ok. But, i would keep an eye on him--if has increasing headache, nausea/vomiting, dizziness over next 24 hrs, contact doc asap. Otherwise, he should do well. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello, : Hello, i can not diagnose the lump on your back. It might be a lipoma which is a soft fatty tumor under the skin. It could be a cyst or an abcess.

If it gets red, hot, drains or you get a fever, you need to get it treated more quickly. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
