Brief Answer:
A benign lump

Detailed Answer:
Dear young lady,
From what you describe, it seems to be a benign wart or a lipoma.
Lipomas are collections of adipose tissue, in the form of a bump, without head and which you can't pop out. They are well round shaped and you can move them beneath the skin. Sometime they can hurt, but most of the time they don't. They just stay there, without bothering the patient, but just affecting the aesthetic part of the skin.
If the bump is not how I described it, please tell me more about the color, border, consistency and how much above the skin it is. You can also check on the internet for pictures of lipomas, but do not be afraid because often on the web there are pictures of extreme cases. Still, you will be able to create an idea about the kind of lump we are talking about.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health!

Brief Answer:
Do not worry

Detailed Answer:
As you said, it may get bigger if he gains weight, but it usually remains unchanged for many years. It may develop rapidly in the beginning, and then it stays the same. As I said, the concern is mostly aesthetical, but a very small percent of them may get infected. In this case, it becomes red, swollen and warm, and he will need to take antibiotics.
Other than this, there will be no other problems.
If you are clear and don't have any other question, you may close the discussion and rate the answer.
I wish you and your boyfriend good health!

Hi. Last Thursday I had a wart like growth removed from the top of my yead. The drs office called Tuesday and said it was Squamous Cell Circoma. I'm scheduled to have surgery to remove remaining tissue the 26th of this month. I think the size was 0.5 or .05, can't remember as my mind was racing. My question is how can I be sure that this same type or any other cancer is present in my body? I do not have insurance and this will be self pay. Due to my heart birth defect (my heart is reversed) insurance is very expensive and I honestly just can't afford it. I've tried to get it before but the premiums are higher than my rent. Thank you.

I have Crohn s disease. As a side effect of meds and a depressed immune system , I tend to have warts . In the last couple of weeks I have developed what I thought was another wart on my right hand . However, it has grown to about 1/2 , is red, swollen, painful and has a bit of a crusty top. Any ideas? (I am on a cancellation list for my skin specialist)

I have a question about genital warts. my fiancé found out he has genital warts and we have not done anything due to the fact I have been scared of it but we have been sexual before we knew what it was. I have not shown any signs but on my pant line in the front I have noticed a big purple looking bump to me it looks more like the color of a bruise. my question is could it be a genital wart being up that high?
