I just noticed that i have a small bump on the inside of my skin on my right butt cheek. What is it? it does not hurt but if i push on it, it is hard but not red. should i be concerned is it cancer?
ok can you answer my question? can you help me? i am scared
How large is the bump?
doesn't feel that big
Since when did you notice it?
Does it appear smooth and uniform?
what does that mean?
if you run your hands on it you can feel a bump but if you press on it the bump is very hard but not that big.
I mean is the skin on the bump smooth or there are ulcerated / clumped bumps? Will you be able to send me a picture of the bump?
what do i do? i am so scared? is it cancerous? what is it? can i get rid of it?
Do not be scared.
the skin around it is smooth
the skin on the bump is smooth as well
Cancers on the skin have typical features - they grow really, really fast. They have ulcerations and they are very irregular in shape and texture.
What you describe is a really smooth, painless and small lump
which is most likely from benign causes.
but if you press on it, it is very hard what is that? a pimple? a tumor?
okay and what does that all mean? can i get rid of it?
All these can appear firm to hard in consistency.
At this instance, I would only monitor the bump.
ok thats it?
Small bumps such as these do disappear spontaneously.
If it persist to remain there say for a week or more, you can get it excised.
ok so i do not need to make an appt with my doc
Since it is painless and there is no skin changes, I don't think medical drugs is going to treat it.
You can wait for few days before going to the doctor.
I would rather call it a minor procedure that can be done at your doctors office.
ok. i will wait until thursday if still there then should i make an appt?
You can wait until Thursday and get it checked by your physician. I don't see any serious concerns here.
Do you have any more questions?\
no i am just scared
Do not be scared.
It definitely isn't consistent with features of cancer.
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
