Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good afternoon, I am Dr Elliot. thank you for your question. Are you able to provide a photo please?
Thanks, ***** ***** indeed subtle, however given this location, it is more likely to be a small cyst rather than a lipoma. If it isn't tender, then allow if a week to settle, if it doesn't then ask your GP for an ultrasound. If it becomes bigger or tender, then I would suggest antibiotics would be appropriate.
Not necessarily, but would not present as fast as a cyst. A lipoma requires fat to form, a cyst is filled with fluid.
No, serious things are slow in comparison. Stick to my previous advice, if bigger/tender - antibiotics, if no improvement in a week - ask for an ultrasound scan, but I wouldn't be concerned, more frustrating to have
My pleasure, take care. Please could you also kindly rate my response by clicking on the stars, this is the only way I am acknowledged by just answer, thanks
