Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Is it red?
Is it painful to touch?
Only if I squeeze it. It feels like a large pimple would feel or an infected hair folicle but does not have a head on it.
I see, this sounds like it may be a sebaceous cyst, which may or not be infected
Do0es a cyst of this type change in size and feel like a pimple would feel
Yes it may do both
Should I seek advise from my doctor about removal? I have been a little gun shy about this issue. I am at the age where I need to have a prostate check and still have not lost my embarrassment. I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes type II and have started noticing all kinds of things wrong, pain in my right side under the rib cage, joint pain and the like. Then this bump. I hope it is just an over active imagination. Go tomorrow for testing on my side pain.
I think you should seek advice from your doctor about removal if it is source of pain to you, if it is not a big source of pain then I think you may hold off on this
It is not really a source of pain. I don't really notice it unless in the shower. You are great. Thank you! You have relieved my mind. I will ask him about this on my next visit.
