Can be prominent follicles.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The small bumps that you noticed can be due to prominent follicles or glands. These can be pigmentation due to old scars of folliculitis. Since there is no itching or any associated symptoms there is no need to worry.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Hello Doctor,

Nice to have you online, well When I was in dubai last few months, I was asked to take an x-ray of my chest and blood test, well on viewing the x-ray the doc mentioned that I had a scar of TB(old-some 25 yrs back)and they would not allow me to sit and work at the office desk,and sent me immediately back to India for my treatment, but on getting back,I attend a hospital where my doc consulted that he is not treating me for TB,as this is an old scar and he is confused why have they sent me back, whereby in the previous years, when I was on my husband's sponsor, were'nt the UAE aware of this? Now that they are disposing many of the people who are undergoing this disease. and whether we can go back to work in the UAE. Please advise doc and thanks for your concern.

I had hernia surgery on Oct 3 of 2013, I have a bump right on the bottom of the scar (hard bump) on my belly button that sticks out.
The doctor went over an old scar when he did the stitches and told me this bump should go down, I previously had ovarian cancer and was wondering if this bump is scar tissue related to that and when/if it should go away.
He did mention a plastic surgeon but what can he do?
