What does a small lump on forehead indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
how can I help you?
A small lump/bump has developed on my forehand suddenly.
and is it painful?
how big is the lump/bump?
It is not very big. I noticed about 6 days ago
Is it painful?
was bit painful initially. now it is not painful
I g to gym, just fyi
What kind of information are you looking for?
Can you tell waht could it be?
There are a few possibilities
I can not be sure without examining you in person
Basing on the location, it could be a ganglion
or a lipoma
or a sebaceous cyst
These are the most likely causes for a painless swelling in the forearm/hand
a complete diagnosis can only be made after clinical examination and histopathological examination of the lump
and follow her/his advise
is there anything else I can help you with?
i read about neurofibromatosis. Is that also possible?
Yes, but neurofibromatosis would present much earlier and single lesions are very rare
i have a very small lump on side of my neck which developed some years ago.
i never cared about it till now
Please get yourself examined by a doctor
that would make things clear
ok, just one more thing. I can see a doctor only after 1 month. Do I really need to see doctor before that.
Depends on the speed of growth of this lump
Once you notice something, it is better to get a proper diagnosis made as early as possible
so that you rule out anything sinister
if it is a ganglion or a lipoma, it would not even require treatment
but neurofibromatosis does not have an cure, i think
but if the lump has developed suddenly, and if it grows rapidly, then other causes such as a skin cancer need to be ruled out
I do not know if it is a neurofibromatosis
and neurofibromatosis does not have a cure, but diagnosis is very essential
Thank you for using the service
have a good day ahead
