How can you tell the difference between a cysts or lipoma? I have a marble sized lump under skin. Easily moves around with little pressure No pain.
Transillumination: One way to determine if a subcutaneous mass is fluid filled (cyst) or more solid (lipoma) is to use a small penlight or similar. While in a darkened room you place the light source as close as possible to the cyst from one side or the other to see whether the light transilluminates the mass. If little light is visible across the mass, it is likely more solid. Positive light indicates fluidic cyst. ...Read more

Usually, one starts with a primary care doctor, who can refer to a specialist if needed, or if the lump looks worrisome. ...Read more
