Depends.: It's hard to say without looking at it. Most lumps and bumps in young people are nothing to be concerned about. Unless you have a family history of skin cancer, it is hurting you or there are other associated concerning symptoms, I would give it a few weeks and if it's worsening or not gone have someone take a look at it. ...Read more

Neck bumps: It is difficult to determine exactly where these bumps are located. It is possible that they are enlarged lymph nodes. I would suggest you have your primary care physician examine them. ...Read more

I don't know.: If they are epidermal cysts or plugged hair follicles, no. If they are lymph nodes, maybe. See your doctor or a dermatologist and put your mind at ease. ...Read more

See dermatologist : Consult a dermatologist to see if the bump is a cyst, lipoma, lymph node, or other lesion. They may do a biopsy or excision to help diagnose the lesion or remove it completely. ...Read more

Just noticed small BB like bumps under the skin of my penis near the top. Any thoughts?

It may be...: Most likely, they're harmless sebaceous cysts, which may grow over time with a widely variable pace and become infected occasionally. But, being without a direct look at and palpate it may limit my accurate guess; so, see Doc timely. But, for all health-conscious persons, I urge them to practice low-risk healthy lifestyle without overindulgence/obsession as foundation of healthcare.... ...Read more

Could be normal: Could be tiny cysts. Not a common complaint of a sexually transmitted disease. I think a visit with a dermatologist is in order to ease your mind. ...Read more

Start with a general: doctor. If exam shows that these are in the skin or subcutaneous tissue, dermatologist or plastic surgeon is the proper specialist. If exam shows that these are in the bone, orthopedic surgeon. And if these are rhematoid nodules, a rheumatologist. ...Read more

Please get it ..,,,: Checked. A growth is concerning. However the fact that it's painful makes me think it might be epididymitis (inflammation of the sperm ducts) rather than a tumor. Either are treatable, but you need to catch the latter early. Good job on doing self exams ! ...Read more
