How to treat a marble sized lump in the pectoral area?

My son is complaining of a sore area with a marble to golf size lump in the pectoral area. He has been exercising for the past 30 days using his own body for weight lifting exercises (pullups, pushups, situps, etc.. He previously had not done much exercise other than the physical activities required of his job. He is 25 yrs old 5 10 tall 225 lbs. He wanted to get in better physical condition and lose some weight. Any recommendations on what he should do.

hi.

based from your description, it could possibly be a cyst (sebaceous or keratinous type), a fibroma (fibrous tissue formation) or a lipoma (a fatty tissue deposit). it is best if you consult with a doctor, preferably a general surgeon, for clinical evaluation. management (medical and/or surgical) will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.

good day!!
