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

I have this very painful bump on my butt cheek, it seems to reoccur every other month. Hurts to sit down and is inflamed, any treatments?

An online consultation at Health Tap with images of the painful bump is suggested. Sharp photos including closeups are needed.

Woke up with a reddish/brown raised bump (~1/4 in. Diameter) on my cheek, painful when touched/stretched. It looks scaly like a burn. Possible BCC?

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

Bump: Any black bumps like that should be examined and possibly biopsied. Please see ur health provider asap and have it evaluated. While most likely it is a small hematoma, other more sinister possibilities are certainly present. (i.e. Melanoma etc.) 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

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 (hydrocortisone) 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

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 had a red bump on my bum cheek (close to inner thigh crease) It looked and felt like a painful pimple, now it looks popped and looks like a sore.

Pimple: This sounds like a small abscess caused by an infected hair follicle. It can be really warm and painful. Usually when it drains, will feel better but you should keep a close eye on it and keep it clean. If the pain worsens or the site starts looking worse, see your doctor because it might become more infected. ...Read more

Given oral sex to male. Swollen lymph nodes, jaw pain, and clear fluid bumps that clear up soon (painful), 3 red dots cheek. Symptoms 3 days after Zpak?

Sounds: Like you may have acquired HERPES infection (Sometimes Herpes virus attacks a less common mucous membrane) It is certainly a possibility that you might respond to an anti-herpes (anti-viral) medication. Ask your Treating Health professional if this is a good idea...in any case I hope it helps
