I have a small lump on my back right side of my neck, what doctor should I see to have it removed. No health insurance, can't afford a lot of appointm?

Try a family doc: How long have you had it? If you have had it a long time and it doesn‘t bother you, it might be a lipoma and that can be left alone. I recommend seeing a low cost primary care/family medicine doctor out of pocket to get an opinion before you look for a surgeon. If it is small, sometimes a family doc can remove it, too. ...Read more

Little swollen under tongue. Small lump on each side it seems. Very tiny but painful. Should I wait until monday or sooner to see doc.?

Likely salivary duct: These are likely your salivary ducts under the tongue on each side of the strand of muscle that you see when you raise your tongue. If you have rough/sharp edges on your lower front teeth and have been sticking your tongue out over them, then this is probably the cause. Warm salt water soaks/rinses make help soothe the area. Monday is probably fine, but sooner if it gets worse. Good Luck. ...Read more

I have a painless lump on the side of my foot next to my heel. I noticed it yesterday because it was itching. Should I be concerned and see a doctor?

If there is any redness to the area, go see someone tomorrow. You may also want to try soaking the area in warm water and epsom salt a few times a day until you get into the doctor.

The differential diagnosis includes lipoma, cholesteatoma with mastoid bone destruction, sebaceous cyst, keloid, hamartoma, verruca vulgaris, lymphadenitis, malignant lymph node or other skin tumors.

Muscle on calf is wasting away and soft lump is developing, what is it and what kind of doctor do I see sbout it?

Muscle on calf is wasting away and soft lump is developing, what is it and what kind of doctor do I see sbout it?

Muscles do not: Normally "waste away", particularly if the muscle is still in use. So an elderly bed ridden patient may get muscle wasting because they no longer use the muscle. If that is not the case you need to see a doctor. Any lump needs to be evaluated by a medical doctor. I think a good place to start is your internist. ...Read more
