And the question?: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health,
Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person.

AND, I think your point is you don't want the thing there.
It isn't acne. It is unlikely to go away on its own nor get much worse although some skin cancers CAN be like this.


Mainly, it's removable by derm/plastic surgery. ...Read more

Please can you help I have a skin coloured lump on my nose I have photos scared its cancer no pain, so scared please help?

With microsurgery widely available, you may have difficulty even seeing where it was removed. Ignore it, and you will end up with a much more serious problem. And to be brave, act brave. Wishing you the best; here's a before-after news photo from the net. ...Read more

Have a lump on side of nose (10 mm x 5 mm). Grew quickly (2 days), but has stopped. What could it be? Dues not hurt. Is firm.

If it gets worse, really painful, spreading redness or you run a fever, please get seen right away. Facial infections can spread rapidly and be very dangerous. Since this is summer, if it itches, could be a bug bite, too! ...Read more

Nasal injury: Not sure what doc did to examine. An xray is not always conclusive for fracture, so good exam inside and out is necessary. Many displaced nasal fractures are missed as "lumps" when in fact the nasal bone and/or septum has been displaced. But many nasal fractures, displaced or not, are left to heal and repaired later, rather than injuring the injured nose further.. ...Read more
