Depends: If you have any other symptoms such as vision changes or nausea/vomiting, you should see a doctor immediately. If you only have tenderness at the site of impact, try placing an ice pack on the site.

I have a small lump on/near my temple. It is tender to the touch at the site of the lump, the top L side of my head and my left eye is a bit blurry.?

Temporal arteritis?: A painful inflammation of the temporal artery (in the temple) can indicate giant cell arteritis (GCA), an inflammation of the arterial walls. The danger lies in the possible development of a central retinal artery occlusion or arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy, which are vision threatening. A prompt diagnosis by a neuro-ophthalmologist can prevent permanent vision loss, and should be done ASAP!

Abscess?: Sounds like there may be a pocket of infection that needs to be properly drained and treated. Normal (not infected) cysts typically don't grow so rapidly or drain so profusely.

I have a small lump on left backside of neck. Near the ear feels like a bruise but didn't hit head, and top of scalp very tiny bumps. And a stiff neck?

See your doctor: If you truly have a stiff neck--cannot touch your chin to your chest or move head from side to side, you must be seen urgently by your doctor or emergency room--if you have fever this becomes more urgent. If you have any scalp problems this may cause tiny bumps or if you pull your hair tight as some do for braids, this may be related. See your physician.

?? salivary stone: The spot you are describing is where the submandibular salivary glands are, one on each side of the midline. Each gland has a duct (channel)which carries saliva to the floor of the mouth. There may be a stone in one duct blocking salivary flow. See an ENT specialist or go to your doctor for appropriate referral. Good luck.

Small soft lump on left arm pit, white liquid comes out when I squeeze but it is not right on the very surface of the skin, there's about. 25 inch of skin on top of it. I can move it around.?

Sebaceous cyst: It sounds like a sebaceous cyst. This happens when the glands that produce oil on your skin do not drain properly and creates a small pocket. It can be expressed out with out pain. You will need to watch it in case it gets infected, then it will turn red and can hurt. This is not a serious condition. Should discuss with your physician at next visit and have examined just to make sure.

I have a lump in between my breasts it's freaking me out could it be cancer? It's small under the skin the lump is not visible on top of the skin!

You will need to: See a healthcare provider to examine and get a study of some kind, either mammogram or ultrasound depending on the location and size of the lump, to determine its significance. Some lumps are just normal breast tissue, but it is vital to get it checked properly to know for sure. Hope this helps.

Pain in left shoulder blade for several years, accompanied by local (skin) partial numbness, small lump towards top right that can be moved and grinds?

Pain in left shoulder blade for several years, accompanied by local (skin) partial numbness, small lump towards top right that can be moved and grinds?

Numbness, lumps: These could be related, as a lump (nodule or mass) may cause pressure on a superficial nerve in that area. Grinding is common with some people's joints (crepitus) and if not painful is of little concern. If the lump and not the joint is making the grinding noise, perhaps it is time to get it checked out!
