This is a small cyst. It is unlikely to grow, how long have you had this please?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Thank you for your response. I think 1 month now. Could it be symptom of some hidden disease?
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 14 days ago.

That is my pleasure, No it is nothing concerning, they typically resolve on their own, if not, you could ask your GP to aspirate it.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Thank you! I was wondering if there is any cream or something to apply to help resolve it
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 14 days ago.

I would use a warm compress on it for a week and see if this helps settle it back down and possible drain.

Thank you! I will try that. Thank you so much
