Hello I have a reddish, pink swollen and semi -painful bump on the inside of my mouth near the middle to upper part of the inside of my cheek. Cancer?

Need more info: It depends on how long has it been there that you know off? If it is increasing in size and has been there for more than 2-3 weeks, then you need to go see a doctor to get it checked out. It is quite common to have canker sores in the mouth but they heal within 10-15 days with or without treatment. Anything that does not heal in 3-4 weeks is suspect for cancer. ...Read more

I have deep painful bumps only & always on my right cheek on face, takes months 2 go, what is it ?

I have deep painful bumps only & always on my right cheek on face, takes months 2 go, what is it ?

If it is: In the skin, maybe deep acne. If it is deeper it could be stones in the parotid gland, or even a tumor. I don't think it is related to your thyroid condition or hay fever. Have it checked out. ...Read more

Abscess?: Sounds like you have an infection of some sort-possibly an abscess on your buttocks. If it does not resolve on its own, you need to see the Doctor for an evaluation, and possible Antibiotics with I&D. Best wishes. ...Read more

I keep getting these fluid filled bumps on my inner upper cheek near back teeth. Is this herpes or a mucoceles. They are not painful.

I keep getting these fluid filled bumps on my inner upper cheek near back teeth. Is this herpes or a mucoceles. They are not painful.

Prob mucocoeles: If they come and go and are not painful are probably mucocoeles. Herpetic lesions are usually painful. Here a picture is worth a thousand words and they need to be seen by someone when present for a correct diagnosis! ...Read more

I have a painful bump that developed on my butt cheek; it's not on or close to anus. Could it be a hemorrhoid? I often have to sit on wooden benches.

I have a painful bump that developed on my butt cheek; it's not on or close to anus. Could it be a hemorrhoid? I often have to sit on wooden benches.

Simply NO: A hemorrhoid is an anal process, so a bump on the buttock is some form of carbuncle. In this day and age, MRSA infections arise as random areas of pustules. And, it is possible it may have been caused by a splinter - i don't know. You should get this seen, either in a prompt care of doctor's office, and soon if you are diabetic. Good luck. ...Read more

Possible abcess: Sounds like you may have developed an abcess (a collection of pus/infection) in that area. If this is the case, you need tobee seen by a medical professional who can see if the pus needs to be drained out and possibly antibiotics. This should not get put off as these things can get very bad and the infection can spread, including into your body. ...Read more

2 or 3 small, red bumps on each side of inner butt cheek, almost directly across from one another, not painful, not itchy, been there about 4 weeks?

2 or 3 small, red bumps on each side of inner butt cheek, almost directly across from one another, not painful, not itchy, been there about 4 weeks?

Folliculitis.: What you are describing could be folliculitis which is simply inflammation of the extremely small hair follicles which are present in that area. Folliculitis can be asymptomatic, or it can be itchy. Try using some over the counter Cortaid twice daily for a week, but if that does not take care of it, see your dermatologist. You may need something prescription strength. ...Read more
