Lymph node: Lymph nodes are found throughout the body. The most common ones that can be felt are both in the front and back of the neck, under the armpits and in the groin. One can also find them around the elbows. Any scratch, bite, or infection can make a particular lymph node draining that area, swell. If they continue to grow and persist over six weeks, they need to be evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

I have had a hard pea-sized lump under my skin on my bum for at least 2 yrs - what can it be?

Probably nothing: Hello Kasia,

This may be a lipoma (fatty tumor) or a sebaceous cyst. To be sure, have your doctor look at it at your next appointment. Chances are it's nothing to worry about unless it is enlarging or painful.

Best wishes,

See your doctor.: A subcutaneous mass can be lots of different things. In your case I suspect you had a case of folliculitis with a small abscess. If it never drained its contents it may have calcified over time. Your doctor can remove this so a diagnosis can be made by a pathologist. ...Read more

If: If the scalp moves freely over these lumps, and they feel hard like bone, they are likely to be osteomas which are benign and don't typically need treatment unless symptomatic. In some rare cases, they may be related to a systemic disorder (such as gardner's syndrome associated with colonic polyps). My best recommendation is have someone check these out to make a proper diagnosis and hopefully reassure you there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more

I have a small lump the size of a pea underneath my right but cheek it's quite hard and is attached to the skin any idea what it could be?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. However, if there are no symptoms and it is not a cosmetic issue, you may wait and watch. If the lesion doubles in size or additional lesions appear, it would be prudent to see a doctor.
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. ...Read more

Small hard pea size lump in the beginning of my anus (inside)!!!! It's under the skin! Please tell me what is it? I have no STIs

If painful, any general practitioner can remove a clot from a hemorrhoid with immediate relief. Otherwise, keep an eye on it and visit your doctor to confirm the diagnosis if it doesn't improve. ...Read more

I found a hard pea-sized painless lump just inside my anus under the skin. I do have hemorroids, but this lump is not soft and not painful.?

It is most likely: An "old" clotted hemorroid! These wind up as tiny lumps (old clots) in one of the small veins!
