Try to remove: Depending on age, the most common cause of a large painless nodular lesion of the temple is keratosis. These lesions never bleed since they represent accumulation of skin in layers and at times can be peeled off. Other nodular lesions like an amelanotic nevus would bleed if irritated as would be true of an exophytic squamous malignancy. ...Read more

Pain in left temple comes and goes when I press on temple it hurts worse. Could this be a tumor or aneurysm?

Unlikely: It is not feasible to say what it is without examining you, though the risk of tumor or aneurysm is remote.

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

Pain in temples and sometimes in jaw (sometimes in left, sometimes in right and some times in both) I fell it in afternoon I'm very afraid of tumor?

No tumor: Pain travelling from left to right and deom temple to jaw is not a sign of a H&N tumor but a neurologic condition with nerve irritation possibly of trigeminal n. A viral inflammation of either nerve area may produce such symptoms. A tumor would be an ulcerating lesion of the skin of the face or oral cavity that doesn't heal or a tumor mass in a salivary gland such as parotid. ...Read more

My 9 mo old has a lump near temple since birth dr finally agreed to order u/s; dr thinks it is a dermoid cyst. Should MRI or CT be done to rule out tumor and cancer?

My 9 mo old has a lump near temple since birth   dr finally agreed to order u/s; dr thinks it is a dermoid cyst.  Should MRI or CT be done to rule out tumor and cancer?

Follow your heart: A knot present since birth is not going to be a cancer and a dermoid is considered a benign tumor. A MRI or ct are not going to give you more data than you have already. You would get more info from having a piece of the cyst removed and studied. This can sometimes be approached from behind a hairline or through the brow. Your doc can suggest a good cosmetic surgeon. ...Read more
