Small, brown lump on chest area? It seems to be going away, but I'm curious. It's moveable, and not tender.

Small, brown lump on chest area? It seems to be going away, but I'm curious. It's moveable, and not tender.

The most common: brown skin lesion is a seborrheic keratosis...a benign lesion which appears to be "stuck on" the skin. If it is more like a lump it is likely a different benign growth...a dermatofibroma. It probably represents a fibrous or scar like reaction to minor trauma/insect bites. Flatter brown spots are nevi/moles, and, as you know there are dangerous ones..melanoma skin cancer. If ?'s, have Doc check:) ...Read more

Could also be a localized fatty tumor, and could be many other things. Best to see MD, and take pics of the lump at times when it looks different; bring pics with you. ...Read more

Prob not helpsul: Despite being an ultrasound specialists, i'd probably skip the ultrasound in this case... I don't think it will give you the final answer. I'd probably go with a ct scan of the chest and make sure they put a marker over the area of interest for the scan. ...Read more

For example, if you were a 12 year old male with a small lump under your nipple, it would not be worrisome. If you are a 40 year old woman with the same lump, it could be a cancer. The best thing to do is see your primary care physician. ...Read more
