Chalazion: A chalazion is the encysted remains of your lids battle with a stye. They are benign and will not cause a problem unless it is big enough that you are upset by the appearance. At your age this is the most likely diagnosis. It can be surgically removed by a simple office procedure. ...Read more

I have a very small painless lump on my hand you can only feel it, it's not visible  to the eye, and I've had it for roughly 2-3months ?

Depending on where: it is on your hand, and size can determine what it could be. Is it on the back or your hand, or palm? Is it tiny or is it large? When do you notice it? Is it by the wrist? Each factor can help determine what it can be. The fact that it's painless is great, and talk with your PCP about it. It can easily be imaged to view what's there if it's large enough. Start there, and don't worry! ...Read more

There's a soft lump on my face. A little below my eye but close to my nose. Not firm and disappears when pushed down. Skin issue? Cancer? No pain.

Cancer unlikely: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor, however, from what you described, cancer is not likely. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Initial treatment consists of warm compresses to the area for 5 minutes 4 times a day,along with lid scrubs.If this doesn't solve the problem,then drops(azasite) can be prescribed.Surgical removal is available if all else fails. ...Read more

Lymph glands: Generalized enlargement of lymph nodes are seen in infectious mononucleosis, malignant blood dyscrasias and other infections. I'm not sure that they would be found on the rib cage itself or on the shin bone. I recommend an evaluation by a hematologist or an infectious disease specialist. A lymph node biopsy as well as other tests may be advised by the specialist. ...Read more
